VK3/VC-019 – Mt Warrenheip

VKFF-2402 In – Mount Warrenheip Flora Reserve

Quick activation to pickup Mt Warrenheip before the years end and to catch Peter VK3PF for a S2S.

Setup with my back to the compound facing east with antenna ran out along the ridge. The undergrowth was a lot cleaner this year. The site was burnt out 2 years ago so good to see the grasses coming back ahead of the weeds that plagued the site. 

It was a SOTA activation but the site qualifies for VKFF (VKFF-2402) so will submit the log.

 Photos of Mt Warrenheip and Mt Buninyong from Navigators Road the day before. I was going to go out but given the temp and wind decided it could wait another day.

We have low haze from the fires at Mount Mercer. No risk just a reminder of the conditions and to keep a eye out.

Charging batteries and packing for NYE activation tomorrow at Mt Torbreck with VK3ARR.
