2014 Keith Roget Memorial National Parks activation weekend

This weekend is the annual activation weekend for the Keith Roget Memorial National Parks Award (KRMNPA).  As it turns out there is also a VK Spring Summits on the Air (SOTA) Party being held this weekend as well.

So this is a fantastic opportunity to work a stack of parks that qualify for KRMNPA and the World Wide Flora Fauna (WWFF) program, and SOTA summits.

  1. Hi Andrew,

    It should be a great weekend, although they are predicting showers until Tuesday. Lets hope they are not too severe. All off the back of a 39 deg C day today.

    Look forward to speaking over the weekend.

    Paul,
