South East trip

Marija VK5FMAZ and I are home from our trip to the South East region of South Australia.  We attended the South East Radio Group (SERG) Convention and had a great time.

Whilst away we activated a total of seven parks.  Six of those parks were in South Australia, whilst one was in Victoria.  We made a total of 567 QSOs with 44 of those being Park to Park.  We also competed a bit in the VK Shires Contest.

  1. Hi Paul,
    Glad to get the contacts I did on Sunday and Monday but sorry about Saturday missing Buck’s Lake and Douglas Point CP. May be the SE activators might fire up in these two locations? I was too busy and out for most of the day.
    It looks like the weather was a bit better than usual for the SE at this time of the year and you both did very well with the number of contacts.

  2. Hi John,

    It was a great trip. I love the South East. The SERG Convention is on my list of things to attend each year. I particularly like the Sunday night dinner. And yes, weather conditions were pretty kind to us.
