- AM & CW on ANZAC Day - Special Activation of WW2 Historic Bomb Site
Following on from efforts to regain public access to the World War 2 Bombing of 
Townsville Historic Site at Oonoonba, Ray/VK4OIL is currently conversing with the 
authorities to ensure access to the site for a special activation during 
AM & CW on ANZAC Day, Thursday 25th April 2024.
The cleared area at the site is at the moment quite small and Ray envisages a 
maximum number of 6 operators can be accommodated without crowding.
It is hoped that the special activation can transmit on HF and VHF bands and give 
those on-air that day to have a good chance to contact the historic site.
If you are interested in being part of the group and can help with supplying equipment, 
setting up and operating during AM & CW on ANZAC Day as part of the special activation 
please contact Ray/VK4OIL on mobile 0409888875.
