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.

These parks activation are looking good. The day was gray so operated from the car with HF, VHF and computer at hand.
