06092013 VK3/VU-009 (Mt Ida) in Heathcote/Graytown NP













GPS Views









Trip up to NSW for a wedding. Was able to pick up a SOTA and KRMNPA activation. Only a one point but still worth the effort. 

Dirt but good road access.  Park at the top of road and walk 200m into activation zone.

I had S8 noise level and suspect the running generator. 10 contacts when it started to rain so quick pack-up and get back on road as more to come.

    Hi Allen

    Just wondering how you get a screen shot of the GPS? I haven’t worked that out…

      You go to options – display and select screen capture. Once set, and you have to each use as not persistent, a quick push of power button saves the screen as BMP on card in a directory named src.

      Love the little Garmin !
