Commonwealth Contest WIA Teams and HQ Stations
Every year the WIA supports the oldest Radio Contest, The Commonwealth Contest or "BERU".
Lee Moyle - VK3GK
This year the Australian Teams for the forthcoming Commonwealth Contest (BERU) 2022 this weekend (March 12-13th) are as follows:
Australia Team 1
Kev VK6T (VK6LW)
Steve VL6T (VK6VZ) – captain
Australia Team 2
Steve VJ3A (VK3JA)
Patrick VK2PN – proposed captain
In addition Australia should be fielding at least seven Wireless Institute of Australia HQ stations – VK1WIA, VK2WIA, VK3WIA, VK4WIA, VK5WIA, VK6WIA and VK7WIA.
The following Australian HQ stations will be active in the 2022 Commonwealth Contest.
VK1WIA VK1DA, Andrew
VK2WIA VK2WQ, Dave
VK3WIA VK3GK, Lee
VK4WIA VK4TT, Keith
VK5WIA VK5GR, Grant

Some of the above have limited wire antennas and others limited times of operation.
While we did not succeed in getting an operator for VK8WIA, hopefully a VK8 prefix will be active in the contest.
