Barrett Flora and Fauna Reserve VKFF-2264

Our second park for Saturday (30th November 2019) was the Barrett Flora & Fauna Reserve VKFF-2264, which is situated about 340 km northwest of the city of Melbourne.

Marija and I have activated this park previously in December 2018.  On that occasion, it was the very first time that the park had been activated for the World Wide Flora & Fauna (WWFF) program.

After leaving Dimboola Marija and I headed northeast on the Borung Highway.  The Murra Warra windfarm soon came into view.  This was still under construction last time we visited western Victoria.

We soon reached the Barrett State Forest.  This is not to be confused with the Barrett Flora & Fauna Reserve.  The State Forest abuts the northern section of the Flora & Fauna Reserve.

The Flora & Fauna Reserve is relatively well signposted.  The sign at the northwestern corner is in very poor condition.  However, the sign in the southwestern corner is in good condition and visible.

At the northwestern corner of the park, you can find the site of the former Wallum East State School which was opened in 1948 and closed in 1969.

The Barrett Flora and Fauna Reserve is about 223 hectares in size and is located at the northeastern corner of Dogwood Road and Bolwells Road, Wallup, south of Warracknabeal.

The park consists of Buloke Woodlands.  Buloke woodlands are characterised by the buloke tree, which is a leafless casuarina or sheoak tree that grows to about 15m and has twisted branchlets and cones.

The eBird website shows that 41 species of native bird have been recorded in the park including Black Honeyeater, Red-rumped parrot, Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater, and Chestnut-rumped Thornbill.

We set up under the shade of some trees in the northwestern corner of the park off a 4WD track.

Before calling CQ, Marija and I tuned across the band to see if we could find some Park to Park contacts with other park activators.  We found David VK5PL/p on 7.139 calling CQ from the Encounter Marine Park VKFF-1707.  David had a lovely 5/9 signal to western Victoria.  We then logged Gerard VK2IO/p on 7.144, who was activating the Garigal National Park VKFF-0191.

I then propped on 7.135 where I logged a total of 37 stations including the following Park to Park contacts (Marija also logged some of the P2P QSOs):-

  • Victoria VK3LT/p – Black Range State Park VKFF-0751
  • John VK3CU/p – Black Range State Park VKFF-0751
  • Peter VK3PF/p – Wonthaggi Heathlands Nature Conservation Reserve VKFF-2235
  • Sergio VK3SFG/p – Wonthaggi Heathlands Nature Conservation Reserve VKFF-2235
  • Alan VK3ALN/p – Arthurs Seat State Park VKFF-0750
  • Greg VK5GJ/p – Monarto Woodlands Conservation Park VKFF-1763
  • Rob VK4AAC/3 – Black Swamp Nature Conservation Reserve VKFF-2048
  • Adrian VK5FANA/p – Thidna Conservation Park VKFF-2250
  • Peter VK2KNV/p – Kalyarr National Park VKFF-1858

  • David VK2LDW/p – Morton National Park VKFF-1352
  • Nik VK3ZK/p – Cobram Regional Park VKFF-0961

I then swapped the mic with Marija.

Marija called CQ on 7.135 and this was answered by Peter VK3ZPF who was Marija’s tenth contact.  This was followed by Steve VK5ST, Ivan VK5HS, and then Ken VK3UH.  The 40m band was in pretty good shape with some fading on signals.  But it was open locally which was terrific.

Marija logged a total of 36 contacts on 40m including the following Park to Park contacts (I also logged the P2P):-

  • Andrew VK7DW/p – Ben Lomond National Park VKFF-0028
  • Adrian VK5FANA/p – Thidna Conservation Park VKFF-2250
  • Ian VK5CZ/p – Little Mount Crawford Native Forest Reserve VKFF-2884
  • Peter VK3PF/p – Bunurong Marine National Park VKFF-0945
  • Sergio VK3SFG/p – Bunurong Marine National Park VKFF-0945
  • Tony VK3XV/p – Leaghur State Park VKFF-0762
  • Craig VK3CRG/p – Point Cook Coastal Park VKFF-1875
  • Nick VK3ANL – Gresswell Hill Nature Conservation Reserve  VKFF-2104
  • Alan VK3ALN/p – Mornington Peninsula National Park VKFF-0333
  • Rob VK4AAC/3 – Black Swamp Nature Conservation Reserve VKFF-2048
  • Rob VK2VH/3 – Black Swamp Nature Conservation Reserve VKFF-2048
  • Brett VK3FLCS/p – Whipstick Nature Conservation Reserve VKFF-2228

Marija’s 44th contact was with Brett VK3FLCS/p.  Her last contact before we swapped the mic again was with Alan VK5AR mobile.

A few stations had mentioned that the 10m band was open so I headed to the 4WD to hopefully make some contacts on that band using the Codan 9350 antenna mounted on the rear of the Toyota Hi-Lux.  And I wasn’t to be disappointed, logging a total of 14 stations on that band from VK2, VK4, and VK7.  This included a Park to Park with Andrew VK7DW/p in the Ben Lomond National Park VKFF-0028.

I then moved to the 20m band and logged 23 stations including another Park to Park with Andrew VK7DW/p and a Park to Park with Alan VK2MG/p who was activating the Wyrrabalong National Park VKFF-0550.  Stations logged on 20m were from VK1, VK2, VK3, VK4, and New Zealand.

I then tried the 15m band and found that this band was also working very well.  I logged a total of 11 stations on 15m from VK4 and VK8.  I was very pleased to speak with Phil VK8VWA in Darwin and Leigh VK4XB.  I was Leigh’s very first contact on the 15m band.  I also logged a Park to Park with Mark VK4SMA/p who was activating the Lake Broadwater Conservation Park VKFF-1577.

To conclude the activation I moved to 80m where I logged just 3 stations: Peter VK3PWG, Mike VK5FMWW, and a Park to Park with Nik VK3ZK/p in the Cobram Regional Park VKFF-0961.

Dimboola Flora and Fauna Reserve VKFF-2308

Our first park for Saturday (30th November 2019) and the 2019 VKFF Activation Weekend was the Dimboola Flora & Fauna Reserve VKFF-2308.

The park is located about 336 km northwest of the city of Melbourne in western Victoria.

This was to be a first-time activation of the park for the World Wide Flora and Fauna (WWFF) program.

Before heading to the park we had a quick look around the town of Dimboola and to get a cup of coffee.

The Dimboola Flora & Fauna Reserve is located just to the northern boundary of the town of Dimboola.

The park is about 39 acres in size and conserves a remnant piece of native scrub.

The park was alive with numerous birds during our visit, including Corellas and Galahs (photos below).

We accessed the park via Lil Lil Dam Road.  The park was well signposted.

DSC_6554

We drove down Lil Lil Dam Road towards the northern part of park.  We were conscious that the park was close to town and we were worried there might be a little bit of man-made noise on the bands as a result.

We parked the 4WD off the side of the road and found the shade of a gum tree as it was quite a warm sunny morning.  We ran the Yaesu FT-857d and the 20/40/80m linked dipole for this activation.

DSC_6570

Sadly when we turned on the transceiver we found that we had strength 6 to 7 noise on the 40m band.  Our only ‘suspect’ was some power lines and solar panels on a farm house about 300 metres away.

DSC_6567

Feeling rather frustrated with the noise, Marija placed a spot up on parksnpeaks for me, and I called CQ on 7.144.  First in the log was David VK3VRA who was 5/9, well above the noise.  This was followed by Rod VK7FRJG, Deryck VK4FDJL/5 and then Keith VK2PKT.

After 14 minutes I had contact number ten in the log, and the park was qualified for VKFF.  QSO number ten was with John VK4TJ.

Our first Park to Park contacts for the 2019 VKFF Activation Weekend came 20 minutes into our activation.  It was with Peter VK3PF/p and Sergio VK3SFG/p who were activating Outrim Cemetery Nature Conservation Reserve VKFF-2171.

I logged a total of 27 stations on 40m from VK2, VK3, VK4, VK5, and VK7.  I then swapped the mic with Marija.

DSC_6555

Marija called CQ on 7.144 and this was answered by Les VK5KLV at Port Augusta in the north of South Australia, followed by Liz VK2XSE mobile, and Peter VK2KNV mobile.  Marija’s tenth contact was with Nik VK3ZK/p who was activating the Cobram Regional Park VKFF-0961.  I also logged Nik for a Park to Park contact.  A few QSOs later, David VK2LDW/p called in while activating the Jerrawangala National Park VKFF-0248.

Marija logged a total of 22 stations before we once again swapped the mic.

DSC_6558

I called CQ again and this was answered by John VK7FJFD, followed by Rex VK3OF, and then Mark VK4SMA/p who was activating the Irongate Conservation Park VKFF-1563.  Marija also logged Mark.

I logged a further 22 stations including the following further Park to Park contacts (also logged by Marija):

  • Gerard VK2IO/p – Lane Cove National Park VKFF-0281.
  • Andrew VK7DW/p – Ben Lomond National Park VKFF-0028.
  • Alan VK3ALN/p – SOTA Arthurs Seat VK3/ VC-031 & Arthurs Seat State Park VKFF-0750.
  • James VK3VJP/p – Alpine National Park VKFF-0619
  • Rob VK4AAC/3 & VK2VH/3 – Black Swamp Nature Conservation Reserve
  • Angela VK7FAMP/3 – Crossover Regional Park VKFF-0965
  • Tony VK7LTD/3 – Crossover Regional Park VKFF-0965
  • Peter VK5PET/p – Nurragi Conservation Reserve VKFF-2247
  • Sergio VK3SFG/p – Kilcunda Nature Conservation Reserve VKFF-2125
  • Peter VK3PF/p – Kilcunda Nature Conservation Reserve VKFF-2125
  • VK3ARH/p – SOTA VK3/ VW-006 & Grampians National Park VKFF-0213

Contact number 44 for me was a contact with Peter VK3PWG.

Marija jumped back into the operator’s chair and logged a further 11 stations, including her 44th contact, qualifying the park for the global WWFF program.  QSO number 44 was with Liz VK2XSE/p in the Kalyarr National Park VKFF-1858.

DSC_6557.jpg

As Marija had qualified the park for both VKFF & WWFF I took charge of the mic again and ramped the power back up to 40 watts.  I logged a further 12 stations including some more Park to Park contacts:-

  • Ian VK5CZ/p – Cromer Conservation Park VKFF-0779
  • Liz VK2XSE/p – Kalyarr National Park VKFF-1858
  • Peter VK2KNV/p – Kalyarr National Park VKFF-1858
  • Brett VK3FLCS – Bendigo Regional Park VKFF-0960

With a total of 66 stations in the log on 40m, I moved to the 20m band.  First in the log on that band was ZL3DRN/p on SOTA summit Fox Peak ZL3/ CB-091 with a good 5/5 signal.

I then moved up to 14.315 where I logged 10 stations including Mike VK6MB/p who was activating Monadnocks Conservation Park VKFF-1459.

To conclude the activation I moved to 80m where I logged 3 stations from VK2 & VK5.  This included Liz VK2XSE/p activating VKFF-1858.  Unlike the 40m band, it was absolutely dead quiet on 80m.  Very strange indeed.

The time had marched on and it was now just after 1.00 p.m. local time.  After switching on the transceiver in this park and seeing the strength 6-7 noise, we had never envisaged that this would be such a successful activation.  Between us, we had 128 QSOs in the log, including 41 Park to Park contacts.
