An Amateur Television QSO Party will be held through the Melbourne-Geelong repeater VK3RTV and many other Australian and USA repeaters, hopefully European involvement with British Amateur Television Club streaming plus the use of Skype.
The concept, initiated by Peter Cossins VK3BFG for the Amateur Radio Victoria centenary in 2011, has been a growing annual event since.
This year's date is Friday the 20th August from 8pm to Saturday the 31st August 2013 10am - the days and scheduling all in Australian Eastern Standard Time.
Peter VK3BFG said Friday will be the time for Australia and possibly Europeans, the locals are to be joined by those ATVers in the USA, with remote stations anywhere using Skype.
The Digital ATV QSO Party transmissions are relatively short, often in a show-and-tell format to explain personal involvement in the visual medium.
