    From the Wireless Institute of Australia http://wia.org.au/

    Dennis Muldownie, VK6KAD reports that the Special Callsign VI 90 ANZAC has Been arranged for use on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of April 2005. The Dates and Times (0001 on the 23rd to 2400 on the 25th are UTC, GMT or Zulu whichever you prefer to use). Operation of this callsign will be from at least 4 areas in VK6, and we hope to operate from Albany on the 25th, from just after dawn on. Operation will be aimed particularly at VK, ZL, P2, and of course any amateur with a Turkish Callsign. Operation will be on HF voice and hopefully on CW as well.

    Albany was the point of embarkation for the first Convoy of Australian and New Zealand troupes in World War One. It was also the birth place of the traditional ANZAC day Dawn Service. Information on Albany, the Dawn Service, and the 1914 convoy to the Gallipoli Peninsula can be found at http://www.175anniversary.wa.gov.au/index.c....s.icons
