Have kept this one up my sleeve for a while. My in-laws live in Lara about 10m away.
There was activity planned so decided to go up to chase. It turned put too be a great day for S2S contacts as picked up 4 stations,
VK3PF/P @ VK3/VT-022 (Conners Plain)
VK3MCD/P @ VK3/VE-087 (Bald Hill)
VK3WAM/P @ VK3/VC-003 (Mt Ritchie)
VK5CZ/P @ VK5/NE-055 (The Battery)
which brought my S2S total up to 500. The best place to chase is from a summit !
12 contacts, (VK5FAKV,VL3KAN,VK3TCX,VK1DI,VK3DET,VK5PAS,VK3AZZ,VK1NAM,VK2ONZ,VK3GHZ,VK3CAT and VK3YHT)
Three 2M whilst the rest on 40M.
This is a busy track.There were families, runners and walkers constituently. Got to the top but went back down to the chair as too many people around.
There were also a bike race through the park. Its good to see the resources in use.
Was a good day. Worth getting out of bed on a Saturday.
