AUSTRALIA DAY CONTEST TUESDAY / WEDNESDAY 25th / 26TH OF JANUARY 2022
The WIA is pleased to announce a new contest on the calendar. The WIA Australia Day Contest taking place on Tuesday / Wednesday 25th & 26th of January 2022.

So the contest will commence at 22:00 hours UTC on the 25th January 2022 and finishing at 10:00 hours UTC on the 26th January 2022.

This will give all VK call areas a full 12 hours of AX prefix use at the same time.

This is a trial contest and has a few quirks.

Planning ‐ Australia Day

The rules are derived from the RD so you can think of it as a Summer RD. Alan VK4SN and Trent VK4TS brainstormed the concept and presented it to the WIA board only last week. They were able to turn out the approval within days, so positive was the feedback.

Dust off those fancy 2X1 Contest callsigns and be ready for a heap of different calls on the band – Remember any VK prefix call can take AX on Australia Day.

We are also locking in Anzac Day April 25th for a repeat performance.
