Author : Bill Felton - G3XZF

The Lincoln Short Wave Club in the UK we will be QRV for an Australia breakfast Day on Sunday 24th January 2010, the weekend closest to Australia Day, the event is organised by Lincoln City Council.

The event is good fun, a fund raising event, the public turn up, hundreds and hundreds of them, and the Lincoln Short Wave club will be putting an amateur radio station in the mix. They will use the callsign G5FZ, first issued over 80 years ago, as 5FZ and we have also been granted GB4VK – a special event call. They would like to alert all you good guys – and gals – in Australia that we will be looking for calls from VK – we expect to be QRV on 14 – 18 -21Mhz Conditions and sunspots permitting! They have a 60Foot trailer mounted tower with a 5 elements beam on top.

Please help us to make the event a BONZA DAY
