Our results from the 4th year anniversary weekend

Marija VK5FMAZ and I are home from our short trip away to the Fleurieu Peninsula for the 4th year anniversary of the VK5 National & Conservation Parks Award.  As always, we had a terrific time and enjoyed our stay south of Adelaide.  This year we stayed for 2 nights in the homestead located within the Deep Creek Conservation Park.  We can highly recommend this accomodation.

We activated a total of 4 Conservation Parks over the weekend and made a total of 532 QSOs.  This included a total of 99 Park to Park contacts.

Sadly, participation by VK5 activators was down from previous years.  But it was very pleasing to see a number of interstate park activators heading out to take advantage of the Park to Park opportunities for World Wide Flora Fauna (WWFF).  We also logged numerous activators for the Summits on the Air (SOTA) program.

Here is a summary of our activity…..

Thanks to everyone who took part in the weekend, both activators and hunters.  I hope everyone had as much fun as we did.  I will prepare some stats about the weekend over the coming weeks and place on the VK5 Parks Award website, Facebook page, and Yahoo group.  I will also place some additional information here about each of our activations.   And don’t forget to send me your logs so I can upload them to the WWFF database, Logsearch.

  1. G’day Chris,

    Thanks for the P2P contacts. You had a very strong signal. I’ll put together some video in the next couple of weeks and upload to You Tube, so you can see how well your signal was being received at our end.

    Thanks for taking part in the 4th year anniversary weekend.


    Paul VK5PAS.
