18082013 – VK3/VU-011 (Mt Major)

Quick activation of Mt Major on way home from a family event in Shepparton.

Access via “Mt Major TV Rd” which is a dirt rd behind Dookie College. Gate is locked but no issues with foot access. 1Km up the hill. Lots of rocks, mountain bike tracks and communications towers. 


Found a star picket in a rocky outcrop in the zone. Quick setup with squid pole and end fed antenna.6 Contacts then down pickup as literally had family with me. 40m was busy o activated on 7.120. Nice quick operation. However have a entry that I can’t resolve. Sent email to SOTA group so should be resolved quickly.
