Special Event Station to Commemorate the 57th Regiment Martyrs who lost their lives in Canakkale War.
Canakkale Savaslarinda sehit olan 57.Alayi anmak icin calisacak olan ozel gun istasyonu.
Since the 57th Regiment fell while in combat with the ANZAC troops, any contacts with VK / ZL will be much more appreciated. Both sides lost many lives in this nonsense war started by other countries, and any contacts between TA/TC and VK/ZL on this special day will be a show of friendship against the war!
2015 marks the 100th anniversary of this historical event. TCSWAT will be once more on the air as TC57A.
Detailed info about the Canakkale war is at the website. Hope to hear you on the air. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ANZAC_Day

It is the first time a Special Event Station from TA has recieved these two prestigious awards. Many thanks to all those operators (on both sides of the signal / antenna) who made it possible to get these awards. May the souls of those Martyrs rest in peace! Without their sacrifice there would not be a TA / TC prefix possible!?
