    ACMA approve 2 x 1 contest callsigns
    30/07/2020 rasaorg


    ACMA have approved the issue of 2 x 1 contest callsigns with VJ, VK and VL prefixes.

    These callsigns are available for Advanced class amateurs and club stations, for contest operation only. There is a limit of one callsign per licencee and one per club.

    The 2 x 1 contest callsign structure was originally developed by a cross sector committee convened by RASA.

    After a suggestion by AMC, ACMA has extended this structure to two new prefixes; VJ and VL.

    This allows 2 x 1 callsigns to be available to many more amateurs.

    A link to the new callsign template and FAQ:
