VI100PEACE in the Murrayville Flora Reserve VKFF-2407

On Saturday night (10th November 2018), after tea at the Murrayville Hotel, I headed out to the Murrayville Flora Reserve VKFF-2407, for a quick activation using the special call of VI100PEACE.

This is a special call to commemorate the 100 year anniversary since the signing of the armistice, to end the hostilities of World War One.


I spent about 1 hour in the park and made a total of 45 contacts from the park.  The majority of these, 37 QSOs, were on the 80m band.  Stations worked were from VK1, VK2, VK3, VK4, VK5, VK6, VK7, and VK8.  This included special event calls VI2LWF (Lest We Forget), and VI8PEACE.

Band conditions on 80m were pretty tough with the over the horizon radar and static crashes.

Below is a short video which Marija took of some of my contacts.
