Morse code club lifts its profile
The callsign VK2FDU for FISTS Down Under has been on the air for six months with it operated portable by members who had a lot of fun. So far it has been activated in VK2, VK3, VK4 and VK5 on a roster basis of usually a week with nine taking up the offer. The same VK2FDU callsign program will be used in 2017 and roster slots are available. Maybe the club’s other callsign ZL6FF in New Zealand will join the move.
