AX for Australia's National Day

Australian Amateir / Ham Radio Operators can show their support for the Australian National Day by prefixing AX before their VK callsign on Tuesday 26th January 2016.

This gives radio amateurs the chance to be part of the commemoration of the First Fleet's arrival in 1788 at Sydney Gove and the establishment of a European settlement at Port Jackson, with the raising of the British flag by Governor Arthur Phillip.

The same alternative AX prefix applies on ANZAC Day, 25th April and International Telecommunications Day, 17th May.
