6m to 13cm VK1 QSO Party

Are you looking for a better way to beat the propagation doldrums?

Sunday 4 November, VK1 activators are heading for the hills to participate in a VHF - SHF QSO Party. In the lead up to this event some activators have taken the opportunity to construct a homebrew 6m flower pot antenna which they will deploy for the first time. With any luck we may find a spot of Sporadic E to enhance the experience. I’m always optimistic, ha ha. :slight_smile:

If you don’t get out and try, you will never know what you can achieve.

Planned activations on 6m and above include:

VK1BL - Mt Coree VK1/AC-023 1421m ASL
VK1DA - Bowning Hill VK2/ST-042 792m ASL
VK1MIC - Black Mountain VK1/AC-042 812m ASL
VK1VIC - Mt Mundoonen VK2/ST-053 810m ASL
VK1MCW & VK1AD - Webbs Ridge VK2/ST-005 1306m ASL

Ted VK1BL, Andrew VK1DA and Tony VK1VIC will each have opportunities to work aircraft enhancement mode.

I’m expecting a couple more activators to post their activator plans.
