About the Remembrance Day Contest: https://www.wia.org.au/members/contests/rdcontest/

This contest commemorates the Amateurs who died during World War II and is designed to encourage friendly participation and help improve the operating skills of participants. It is held on the weekend closest to the 15th August, the date on which hostilities ceased in the southwest Pacific area.

A perpetual trophy is awarded annually to the Australian state or territory with the best performance. The name of the winning State or Territory is inscribed on the trophy, and that State or Territory then holds the trophy for 12 months. The winning State or Territory is also given a certificate, as are leading entrants.

HF: Icom IC-7300 + DX Commander All Band Vertical
VHF/UHF: Icom IC-9700 + Diamond V2000 vertical + 18 element 23cm yagi
