VK3/VN-001 (Mt Torbreck)
APRS – Limited. Relayed through the car.
It was a wet and windy day.Snow from the Corn HIll trk/Barnewall Plains Rd.
Parked the car and walked up the track. No issues but the snow built up the higher I got. Once on the top of Mt Torbreck the snow was up to my knees. It continued to snow and with the mild but cutting wind the summit had no-ware to hide. Got snow in my pack and all over the MTR. Had backup. Went to SSB to qualify the summit, then the chasers started talking to me in French !!
Didn’t get to Pyramid Hill again more snow then ready for. Didn’t take any photos but the GPS has recorded the venture.
