27122017 – VK3/VC-019

Coming to the end of year and realised I had not activated VK3/VC-019 Mt Warrenheip nor VK3/VC-032. 

VK3/VC-019 Mt Warrenheip is 10 minutes down the road with excellent access. Its not a favourite site as weedy and rubbish on the site. VK3/VC-032 is a great site but 30min drive so will address it soon enough.

HB9DQM was planning to activate VK2/SM-0012 so decided to pop out to gain a 10 point S2S.

Setup to the right as there is a stump there that allows a 40M dipole to be strung up. Despite being close to the comms towers this is a better position then heading along the ridge as you avoid the power lines. Worked the other activators out before turning to CW;

  • VK/HB9DQM/P on VK2/SM-001
  • VK2IO in VKFF-0269
  • VK3PF on VK3/VE-097

we have a lot of Roos in the area so this was a novelty for me.

Ok off to plan for VK3/VC-032, tomorrow ? Will be tight as daughters birthday, lets see …..

There was more fencing to be done at brother in-laws farm so no more SOTA for me despite being within stones throw of summits and parks;
