The special event callsign VK5WOW is available for clubs, groups or individuals to use for activities. NERC has been allocated the callsign and is responsible for its use. The intended use of the callsign is to convey ‘the wow factor’ of the hobby. Ideal activities would include some kind of public interactivity. A STEM activity would be an ideal candidate.
To reserve a time slot, please contact Stuart VK5STU.
