Subject to the Landcruiser being back from its 200k service, I will be attempting to activate 4 x 8 point and 1 x 6 point summit… The last summit is listed as VK3/VT-034 but if I am running out of time, it will be the 4th summit VK3/VT-016. The timing of this will be for some LP EU contacts on CW and SSB if conditions are good enough.
KX3 @ 10 watts and a double extended zepp.
This will be at the end of a long day so some patience please. QRS at about 15- wpm would be appreciated…
See me on Spot Tracker

20m propagation one hour before sunset has been excellent for most of August. Good luck with the EU chasers and trust you have an opportunity to bag a few EU S2S.
g Day Tony nice to work you earlier in the week from my summits . I am still on holiday so I hope to hear you when you are on the bands.
73 de Ian vk5cz …
Ian, that contact was from the mobile. VW Caddy, IC706 2g with the mic up and down buttons for cw. Not as fluent as a paddle. Antenna a simple Opek HF/VHF/UHF tapped whip on the ladder rack. Your cw signal was very clear and easy to work, could not hear anything much at all on 40 due to noise.
I will be listening out for you on Saturday, Tony
Landcruiser is back from the 200K service. A few items to be looked at later (clutch and control arm bushes) but all is ready to go for Tomorrow (Saturday). Chainsaw, Chaps, fuel and bar lube all packed.
Hope to work you from the summits.
I will be monitoring 7.090 and VK3RWG (2m) whilst mobile
Cheers Tony VK3CAT
