Wilsons Prom activations 21 & 22 April 2012

Hi all

On the weekend Sat 21 and Sun 22 April 2012 there will be three activations of Wilsons Promontory National Park by Peter VK3ZPF, Wayne VK3WAM, Kevin VK3KBA, Trevor VK3ATB and Adam VK3YDF as part of the Keith Roget Memorial National Parks Award. http://amateurradio.com.au/awards

They will first be on air on Saturday 10 am – 2 pm local operating from South Point, the most southern place on mainland Australia. They will be active on 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10m with SSB. CW may also be used on some of these bands.

For SSB look around the following frequencies 3.610, 7.110, 14.190, 21.200, 28.480 MHz.

If the battery power permits they will also be on air from the Roaring Meg campsite on Saturday night from 7 pm on 3.610 and 7.110.

On Sunday they will be active from the beach at Oberon Bay from midday until 1 pm local. This activation will be around 7.110 & 14.190 MHz.

All activations will be QRP and we hope to work many stations.

Adam will also be tracking down some geocaches whilst in the area.
