Amateurs to mark Gallipoli centenary

| April 2, 2015

To mark the Centenary of the World War I battle at Gallipoli, three IARU member societies will remember the original Australian and New Zealand Army Corp and the Ottoman Empire soldiers who did battle at Gallipoli in Turkey.

In Turkey at least two commemorative callsigns have been allocated.

TC100GLB is for Battle of Gallipoli while TC100GP is the Centenary of Gallipoli.

In Australia on ANZAC Day, 25 April, there will be eight ANZAC-suffixed callsigns from each state or territory and the national capital of Canberra.

The WIA website has nearly 40 events listed.

All VK radio amateurs may also use the alternative callsign prefix AX on 25 and 26 April.

Across the Tasman Sea the NZART will have ZL100ANZAC on air for a month.

A team of 20 DXers will be on air in DX-style from ANZAC Day.
