VKFF-1879 Woowookarung Regional Park
Woowookarung Regional Park is a brand new 641 hectare park in Ballarat.Previously called Canadian renamed to Woowookarung this week. So between the time Paul listed to it to when I updated the ParksnPeaks database it allready needed an update.
Spent the week adding new parks and updating site data with CAPAD data so keen to get out and play radio.
I was not quicked enough for first activations beaten by Peter VK3FPHG who got out Friday to claim the new park.
This site is 10 minutes up the road. Between SOTA peaks Mt Bunnyiong and Mt Warrienheap.
Recently added a HF radio to Subie. Had a bracket welded to the bullbar so now suporting a Terlin Outbacker vertical.
These parks activation are looking good. The day was gray so operated from the car with HF, VHF and computer at hand.
22 contacts including 5 P2P contacts with VK2JNG at VKFF-0588, VK3PF at VKFF-1877, VK5NIG & VK5STU at VKFF-0017 and VK2HAX in VKFF-0017.
Went ot 20M to see if any VK6’s around. Poor conditiond so back to 40M to finish up and head home as still tasks to complete.
Qualified for VKFF but short of the 44 required for WWFF. No issues as will be back soon enough.
