Yesterday (28/3/2022) Marija VK5MAZ and I had the use of the VK80LAN callsign again for the afternoon and the evening.
The special event callsign VK80LAN is celebrating 80 years of the Avro Lancaster aircraft.
From about 2.30 in the afternoon, we made a total of 320 QSOs into 39 different DXCC entities on 20, 40 & 80m SSB.
The map below shows our contacts.
The long path into Europe was once again very good. The map below shows our contacts into Europe and the UK.
The short path into the USA, Canada, the Caribbean, and Central America was very good during the evening. We worked 29 of the 50 USA States. The map below shows our contacts into that part of the world.
We did not get a huge chance to do anything on 40m for the VKs this time around due to a late start in the shack and then the 20m pile-up, but did work a handful of VKs, and a few dozen VKs on 80m.
We would like to thank everyone who called, and we would like to thank the WA VHF Group for allowing us to use the callsign again, to celebrate 80 years of the Avro Lancaster aircraft.
