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;
