Let the World Digital ATV QSO Party Begin:

DATV enthusiasts around the world will take part in the annual World Digital ATV QSO Party August 30 and 31 through dedicated US repeaters, some direct transmissions and even via Skype. The clearing house for all transmissions will be the VK3RTV digital repeater in the Melbourne, Australia, area, with Peter Cossins, VK3BFG, as anchor. All transmissions will be streamed live via the British Amateur TV Club website The event was first held in 2011 as part of the Amateur Radio Victoria centennial.

VK3BFG says ATVers should join the party personally with short demonstrations or anything else that might be of interest. The World Digital ATV QSO Party kicks off August 30 at 0930 UTC with check-ins by Australian stations. External Skype stations should monitor the BATC website and log into the Skype event station, "atvqsoparty." August 31 at 0100 UTC ATVers on the WR8ATV DATV repeater in Columbus, Ohio, will be patched in, followed by the W6ATN Southern Californian ATV network, at which time Ken, W6HHC, will update the DATV Express Project US repeaters will have their own net control stations. -- Thanks to Jim Linton, VK3PC/WIA
