ANZAC Centenary callsigns deadline

All applications for the commemorative ANZAC suffixed callsigns issued by the WIA must be made fairly soon and certainly finalised before the end of March. The WIA Board has a deadline of March 31 for its ANZAC callsigns, with applications accepted online and filled in using the correct UTC day or days. The callsign applications are only for up to a week at a time.

If seeking an ANZAC callsign read the requirements and obligations which include eQSLing, logging and award eligibility. This information will not only be of interest to ANZAC stations, but they can mention them frequently on air and refer to the WIA website for full further detail.

ANZAC callsign bookings have been good and where overlaps in proposed dates have occurred, the majority of groups are showing consideration and have been flexible enough to adapt. Also a number of other clubs and individuals are to use the alternative AX callsign prefix, available this year for up to 48 hours. Following WIA representations the ACMA in recognition that this is the Centenary of ANZAC, will allow for the use of AX on Saturday and Sunday April 25 and 26.

The WIA recommends that if AX is used then a QSL card with that callsign be used to satisfy the many prefix and commemorative event hunters.
