The special event callsign VI3RVAC is now available for club members to book (via the EMDRC) until the end of October. We have decided to allocate 6 hour blocks to members that are interested in operating the callsign on behalf of the club. All contacts must be accurately logged and the station must be operated in accordance with the operators licence conditions. Only one station can operate the callsign at any time so please make sure you book and receive confirmation of the allocated time.
