Three members of the Victorian Scout Radio & Electronics Service Unit will be again hiking the French Island National Park southeast of Melbourne to operate the scout callsign VK3SAT for the Keith Roget Memorial National Parks Award. Peter VK3ZPF, Matt VK2ADF and Kevin VK3KAB will be active from Fairhaven camping ground on 7 and 8 January 2012.
The bands proposed are 80m, 40m, 20m, 15m and 10m using wire antennas.
The team will carry most of the gear in backpacks and will be joined by three or four others who will be kayaking across from Stony Point.
With additional batteries coming across by kayak VK3SAT hopes to make many contacts and will be QRV Saturday afternoon and evening and Sunday morning.
French Island is also part of the OC-136 IOTA group.
