10062019 – VK3/VC-030 – VKFF-0982 In – You Yangs Regional Park 

Another close walk up the summit activation.1.7K each way for 190M elevation gain. This is the busiest summit I have found. Worse than Mt Hotham in summer.

Here is the summit marker, worn out from the traffic,

Having been here before I was expecting the crowds so took HT to activate on FM. Did post 40M CW alerts but once there, the people and grey sky made the decision to proceed with HT only easy.

An advantage to such tight summits is the car in the carpark caught and resent the APRS from the HT with no issues. Serured the summit with  5 contacts on FM. Did not secure DMR contact as it appears still have not got the correct config for simplex.
