SUNDAY 20th. October 2013.
I managed 3 activations on Sunday. I had 11 contacts from GOWER C.P. for it’s first ever activation.(As far as I know) Greg VK5ZGY took over the mike and had a ball working a similar number of stations for his first ever qrp portable effort as well as being his first ever Park activation.
I then shifted around the corner to TANTANOOLA CAVES C.P. and as I had already activated this Park with Tom, VK5EE, Greg assumed the operating duties and had about 15 contacts. He thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will be keen to get out to a park or two with XYL Gabi.
- Last one for the day was TELFORD SCRUB C.P. where I was joined by Tim, VK5AV. I had previously activated this Park as well so I was more than happy to give the mike to Tim. He has been quite active as a S.O.T.A. and Parks chaser but had never been involved as an activator before this. He made quite a few contacts and was quite surprised at how well the portable qrp set up was performing. He too thoroughly enjoyed the effort and I am sure we will hear him from a park or summit soon. All in all – a great day. We packed up and got about 4 Kms. down the road home and the rain set in, so we were very lucky.
