Clarification re Use of AX prefix


Note Copied from WIA Facebook Page


Clarification re Use of AX prefix:

There has been some unhelpful statements made by a splinter AR group re a proposal to use the AX prefix for commemoration of the recent death of Queen Elizabeth II.

These statements have caused much confusion and if the proposal is followed then it will result in radio amateurs operating illegally and risking prosecution.

The regulations regarding the use of the AX prefix remain unchanged and DO NOT allow for legal use on this occasion.

Whilst it is a significant and solemn occasion, worthy of appropriate commemoration, ACMAs formal

advice on this matter is very clear that is NOT LEGAL to use the AX prefix on this occasion at this time - irrespective of whether it is a major or minor breach.
