Outside the coverage of VK3RTV, this stream will be by far the best way to view the activities. We will also continue to stream VK3RTV on the BATC website which will give even more coverage.
At 0000 UTC on Saturday 24th of September we will start through the DATV repeater WR8ATV in Columbus Ohio. After a short break we will pick up the W6ATN network in Southern California.
