eAustralia award: 8 call areas, 20th March 2018


This award came last night. It is one level below the highest grade, which is for nine call areas, that is VK0 as well. While I have worked Australian Antarctic Territories many times and have confirmations by traditional QSL cards I am still to gain a confirmation by eqsl. So this award captures all mainland, including Tasmania (VK7), call areas (VKs 1 to 8) and VK9. It was a contact with the dxpedition to Ashmore Reef that tipped the scales for me. Here is that eqsl card. I applied for the eAustralia award for seven (7 call areas) back in April 2016, making the level two award nearly two years later.

  1. Excellent work again John. I’m enjoying the quick turnaround of eQSL and I’m saving them off to a digital photo frame. That said, I still enjoy getting a paper QSL from the mailbox!


  2. Hi Chris,
    Thanks for the comment. I enjoy being part of eqsl as well as Log Book of the World. I like your idea of saving them for display on a digital photo frame – but I have over a 1000 eqsl confirmations. It would take a long time to display but next time catch up I might seek some more information on that approach. I also like paper cards, especially from dxpeditions.

  3. Hi Paul
    Thanks for the congratulations. I could probably add a card to the total for the VK0 contacts and apply for the WIA award: worked all Australian Call areas.
    All good fun. I was pleased to have a contact with Craig.
