During September 2018 I used the special call of VI5MARCONI on a number of occasions.
The special Marconi calls which will be heard during the month of September, are all part of the 100 year celebrations of the first direct wireless transmission from the United Kingdom to Australia, which occurred way back on 22nd September 1918.
I jumped on air whenever possible, between work committments. I also activated a total of 5 parks using the call. I ended up with a total of 424 contacts. This included 19 different DXCC entities.
Of those QSOs, a total of 303 were made whilst operating out in the field in a park for WWFF and the VK5 Parks Award.
I activated the following parks using the call of VI5MARCONI......
Scott Creek Conservation Park VKFF-0788
Totness Recreation Park VKFF-1754
Mark Oliphant Conservation Park VKFF-0782
Kenneth Stirling Conservation Park VKFF-0781
Monarto Conservation Park VKFF-0828
