During June 2018 I was privileged to use the special call of VI70MI. This was courtesy of Lee VK3GK, who is the custodian of this special call.
VI70MI is issued to commemorate 70 years of ANARE (Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions) for Macquarie Island, which since 1947 have served Australia in the south polar regions.
I operated from both at home and in the field. I activated the Ferries McDonald Conservation Park VKFF-0881 and the Scott Conservation Park VKFF-0934. I ended up working a total of 535 stations on 2m FM and 10, 15, 20, 40, & 80m SSB. I worked a total of 16 DXCC entities, 23 of the 50 US States, 15 out of 40 of the ITU zones, and 11 IOTA entities.
