Skeds

This page makes it easy to see all known scheduled daily or weekly CW activity events including nets and broadcasts. Click "Print" on the right hand side for a printer-friendly page. Check this page regularly for updates. Bold are regular and established.

If you printed this page please check www.vkcw.net/skeds for the latest version

The days llsted below are given as Local Australian days, therefore UTC times will not match the day. E.g. 2200UTC in an entry on Sunday is actually Saturday 2200UTC, but as locally the time falls on a Sunday so the entry is listed under Sunday for practical simplicity in planning CW activities.

**Local times are Newcastle, NSW Time (Newcastle appears to be the capital city of VK — for CW operators!)
