The World ATV QSO Party

This year’s annual on-air gathering of the visual mode of Amateur Television will be held on 29-30 August 2014.

The event will be broadcasted on the Melbourne-Geelong VK3RTV repeater and streamed through the British Amateur Television Club.

The 2014 event is the 4th annual World Digital ATV QSO Party which was originally a part of the centenary for Amateur Radio Victoria.

Friday night will be VK-only including links to new digital repeater VK5RDC at Port Pirie, and possibly joined by VK4RKC in Brisbane.

Australians can work through their local ATV repeaters and net controllers are to provide the Internet links. Those ATVers not within repeater range may pre-arrange to Skype-in direct to master controller Peter VK3BFG.

On the Saturday there will be four net controllers - Peter VK3BFG, Don KE6BXT, Art WR8DMC and for the first time Noel G8GTZ. International repeaters are W6ATN, WR8ATV, GB3HV and possibly GB3SQ and GB3KM.
