AX Prefix on World Telecommunications Day
Under a permanent agreement with the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) all Australian radio amateurs may use the alternative AX callsign prefix instead of VK on three days in the calendar.
Australia Day - January 26
ANZAC Day - April 25 and
World Telecommunications Day - May 17.
World Telecommunication and Information Society Day is the anniversary date for the creation of the International Telecommunication Union, the ITU, and the signing of the first International Telegraph Convention.
Popular on air among prefix hunters and others is the AX prefix. The use of a special QSL card with it is greatly encouraged by the Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA).
