Special prefix for ANZAC Day

All Australian radio amateurs may substitute their VK prefix with AX onANZAC Day, April the 25th.
The WIA recommends that those who choose the alternative also confirm QSOs using a QSL card with the AX callsign. This also satisfies both prefix and card hunters.

For example, the Hellenic Amateur Radio Association of Australia will have a special event station AX2CL at Bare Island in New South Wales.
Bare Island is in Sydney's south, near La Perouse, and accessible by a
footbridge. An historic military fort and tunnels there can be visited only
by a guided tour.

Under a permanent agreement the Australian Communications and Media Authority allows the alternative AX callsign prefix to be available on ANZAC Day, Australia Day January 26, and ITU International Telecommunications Day, May 17.
