Every year the WIA supports the oldest Radio Contest, The Commonwealth Contest or "BERU".

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)
Barry VK2BJ

Steve VL6T (VK6VZ) – captain

Australia Team 2
Steve VJ3A (VK3JA)
Allan VK4SN
Alan VK7BO
Patrick VK2PN – proposed captain
Rob VK6HG

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.

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.
