Listen out for both the New Zealand Team who will be activating the special event callsign of ZM9ØDX & the UK team as GB2NZ in the coming weeks.
Both stations will commemorate early Radio exploration that took place in New Zealand as far back as the 1920’s.
To commemorate the 90th anniversary of the record breaking activities of these early pioneers of Amateur Radio, ZM90DX will be on the air between 1st October 2013 and 31st October 2014 on all bands 1.8 MHz to 1.2 GHz (and beyond) in all modes and GB2NZ 5th – 25th October 2013.
Activated by the Kiwi DX Group and several UK operators, an informal group of DXers and contest enthusiasts, ZM90DX will be used around New Zealand. Not only will ZM90DX be active at expected times and on expected bands, but in the spirit of those early pioneers the ZM90DX operators will also be calling CQ on bands and in directions one may not necessarily expect with the intention of exploring the boundaries of radio propagation.
