    Australia Day - Amateur Radio

    The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) automatically allows all radio amateurs to substitute their normal VK callsign prefix with the letters AX, every Australia Day.
    Their national day this year falls on Friday 26th of January. This gives radio amateurs the chance to be part of the commemoration the First Fleet's arrival in 1788 at Sydney Gove and the establishment of a European settle- ment at Port Jackson, with the raising of the British flag by Governor Arthur Phillip. The AX prefix is popular among prefix hunters and others.
    The use of a special QSL card is encouraged by the Wireless Institute of Australia.
