Brief station history:

In August 2009 Aaron (VK2ON) in conjunction with Jaye (VK2SD) re established the site at Callemondah that had laid dormant for over 15 years to operate that years JOTA event. Aaron, Jaye and the guides worked the world from the Americas to Europe and back and and the station in the bush was born.

Soon after Aaron arranged the callsign VK2GGC (Girl Guides Callemondah) and since then a number of other local hams have all joined to make the site one of the best JOTA stations in the country. When not operating the site for JOTA or open days the guys can be heard competing in both local and world wide contests or just up putting out a CQ between the station maintenance.

The VK2GGC team consists of Aaron - VK2ON, JAYE - VK2SD, CLEEVE - VK2MOR, Matt - VK2ZMT, Steve - VK6SJ, Peter - VK2PV, John - VK2FJ, Rick - VK2HFP, John - VK2FALL and more).
