Kevin White VK0KEV and Trevor Hopps VK0TH both used amateur radios in their recreational time on Macquarie Island and managed to work in excess of 16,000 contacts over the 2010-2012 seasons. Both call signs were registered with the DXCC desk to allow amateur radio enthusiasts around the world to register their contacts for awards under the DXCC.
The 2011/2012 season was particularly lucky celebrating 100 years of wireless on Macquarie and the call sign AX/VK0TH was registered and used for just this purpose. [more]
