Well WIA have done it again!! VK9AAA has been allocated for" Norfolk Island" for use later this year,. So this year alone we have seen VK9 A## alocated for two different DXpeditions with the located islands either side of Australia.. If u have noticed with the VK9 GMW EXPEDITION hams were question where are they!! (on the DXclusters) es ,if VK9W## why 'arnt they using VK9W## U WOULD THINK THAT THE OPERATORS OF THESE DXPEDITIONS WOULD KNOW HOW THE SYSTEEM WORKS AS FAR AS DXpeditions go with call signs?? ITS GETTING TO THE STAGE WHERE A CALL SIGN MEANS NOTHING OF THE TRUE LOCATION OF THE STATION!! WOTS WRONG WITH "OUR" WIA ,ES ALLOCATION OF VK call signs
