ANZAC AX prefix for 48 hours

Author : Jim Linton - VK3PC

To commemorate ANZAC Day 2015, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) will allow all VK radio amateurs to substitute the AX callsign prefix for up to 48 hours, in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the landing of ANZAC troops at Gallipoli.

The Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA) in asking the ACMA for the one-off extension, anticipated that there would be a lot of demand for its ANZAC callsigns at that time. So more radio amateurs can be involved in ANZAC 100 events, the ACMA has agreed that AX may be used on both April 25, and 26.

The WIA recommends that those using the AX prefix do so with a special QSL card because it will be sought after, especially by prefix or special card
chasers.
