Held the Saturday and Sunday of the weekend prior to the second Monday of June every year.
Starts: 00.00 UTC Saturday Ends: 23.59 UTC
VK Stations work VK Shires and CQ Zones whereas international stations only work VK Shires
Operation on the 160m band has been added and there is a new start time, but the major change is that reworking stations is now allowed in 4-hour blocks. The rules for the blocks are, however, somewhat different to what is in John Moyle Memorial Field Day or VHF-UHF Field Day use, so read the rules carefully.
Aim Of The Contest
The objectives of this contest are for amateurs around the world to contact as many VK shires as possible in the contest period. VK amateurs are to work the world including VK, whilst the rest of the world can only work VK
