tion,  reports that  all the outgoing QSL cards  will be  mailed on  13 May.
Please allow sufficient time for mail delivery from the United Kingdom.

VK0 AND VK9 PREFIXES: CHANGE ---> The  Australian Communications  and  Media
Authority has updated its "Amateur Radio Call Sign Policy". The document can
be found on  https://www.acma.gov.au/amateur-radio-r ... #documents.
The changes affecting the DX community relate to the use of the  VK0 and VK9
* callsigns with the prefix  VK0  will only be assigned to operators located
  in the Australian Antarctic Territory.
* callsigns with the prefix  VK9  will only be assigned to operators located
  in an Australian External Territory other than the Antarctic, i.e. Ashmore
  and Cartier Islands, Christmas Island, Cocos (Keeling) Islands,  Coral Sea
  Islands  (including Mellish Reef  and  Willis Island),  Heard and McDonald
  Islands, Norfolk Island.
In practice, newly assigned callsigns  will be prefixed with  VK9  for Heard
Island,  VK7 from Macquarie Island (as it is part of Tasmania), and  VK2 for
Lord Howe Island (as it is part of New South Wales).
