VK3/VN-016 (Mt Alexander)
Off to Echuca for sisters birthday so decided to take the radio and activate Mt Alexander.
Mt Alexander is just off the highway near Bendigo. Anyone driving up to Bendigo should have this summit on the todo list.
My plans were open ended up on Sunday midday. Had my brother with me so quick operation
Easy access. I come from Castlemain but if your coming from Melbourne you will be turning at Faraday. Should be able to remember that.
Turn off highway and follow signs to Mt Alexander. On way out come out at Harcourt. Before the highway this was the spot to buy apples.
Parked car just off road in a cleared area. Walked up to look at the rocks then down past the radio towers to the open clear areas and back. Interesting the SWR was very tight. Cables underground ?
Missed S2S with VK2 weekend. Not complaining as was a drive by anyway.
