A quick night activation of Croajingolong National Park VKFF

After dinner at the Mallacoota Hotel, Marija and I headed back to the Bed and Breakfast.  As it was a Monday night (13th November 2017) I decided to go for a quick drive down to the Croajingolong National Park VKFF-0119 and book in to the 7130 DX Net.

I decided not to worry about rolling out the linked dipole, but rather, operated from the vehicle using the Icom IC-7000, 100 watts, and the Codan 9350 self tuning antenna.

The 40m band was in great shape and I logged a total of 14 stations on the net from VK2, VK3, VK4, VK7, and Canada.  I was very pleased to log Terry VE6POH who was 5/9 to me.  He reciprocated with a 5/7 for me.
