2013: Hams mark 100 years since VLA opening

From 18 Dec 2013 to 18 Feb 2014 inclusive, Far North Branch 78 of the New Zealand Association of Radio Transmitters held the special callsign ZL100VLA to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the opening of VLA/ZLA at Awanui.

The group announced that it would be active on CW and SSB on all amateur radio bands 80 to 10m, and on FM on 2m and 70cm (National System).

Editor’s note:

I would be interested in receiving any information about this operation. I listened for ZL100VLA throughout the year, but never heard it.
