Amateur Radio celebrates the ABC’s 90th anniversary

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and amateur radio have a lot in common; both utilise the magic of radio. For the last 90 years this magic has informed, entertained, saved lives and brought people together.  Our world is a smaller place thanks to the magic of radio.

During 2022, amateur radio operators across Australia will be using the special event callsign VK90ABC* to make contact with other amateur radio operators across Australia and around the world.

We will be talking about the national broadcaster, its history and helping ‘aunty’ celebrate this magnificent milestone.
