Today came with a nice surprise – I was successful in a ballot for the 2×2 call sign VK3BL!

The paperwork is on the way to ACMA, and within a week or two I will be on the air with my lovely new short 2×2 call sign!

As our regulator only allocates the VK prefix, a 2×2 call is the shortest a VK amateur can hope for.  Unfortunately in VK3, they are all allocated, so there can be quite a wait to get one.

I’m very happy – whilst the suffix ‘BL’ does not mean much to me as such, it is nice and easy to say – Victor Kilo Three Bravo Lima!
