Andrew VK1NAM achieved his Mountain Goat award yesterday 26/9 activating his “favourite summit” Mt Gingera, VK1/AC-002, in company with Al VK1RX. The qualifying contacts were made on 2m FM with local chasers and the 4th was an S2S to VK1DA at Vk2/ST-005.
Andrew has a log of how far he has walked to each activation, so no doubt he will reveal the “MG distance” in due course. At the time of writing he and Al are camping in the valley between Mt Gingera and Mt Ginger Ale, about to walk the 12 km back to the car park at the base of Mt Ginini. Most of that road has no phone coverage but is well served by the 2m FM repeater at Mt Ginini.
