Trip to Victoria

Marija and I are back home from our 16 day trip around Victoria.  We travelled to Bendigo, Shepparton, Marysville, Sorrento, Williamstown, Geelong, & Hamilton.

We did a lot of sightseeing on the trip, but also played radio.  We were away during the VKFF Activation Weekend, and activated 4 parks on that particular weekend.

We also caught up with Ron VK3JP, Alan VK3ALN, Rod VK3OB, Dallas VK3DJ, Peter VK3ZPF, and Steve VK3NSC.

Some stats from the trip are as follows…..

  • Parks: 36
  • Summits: 8
  • Total QSOs: 1,589
  • Total kms travelled: 3,413

I will slowly start uploading my logs to WWFF Logsearch.

And in the coming weeks I will also add info & photos on each of the activations to my WordPress site.

Thankyou to everyone who called us while we were away.
We hope we were able to give some of the park tragics, some new parks to add to their tally.

And a BIG thankyou to those who took the time to spot us on parksnpeaks, Facebook, etc. Many of the parks we were in, we had no internet coverage.

Below is a summary of our Park & SOTA activities whilst we were away……
