Hope all is good your end, hard enough to do VK6NU on CW, never mind AX6NU. It would be nice to get some Europe in the log. Voacap not looking too good. In a few weeks we may have to look at an overnight camp at Mt.Cook on the Bibbulmun Track and go up the track in the dark to the Summit around 10-11pm local and work short path which seems to have some good conditions. Think from memory its about 40 mins from the campsite to the summit but not the easiest walk. I’ll keep you updated on that one but its on the cards.
I have already qualified Mt.Randall this year but Lewis hasn’t and doing joint activation’s we do seem to get some interference issues. We will work around them the best we can. Conditions have been so bad in VK6 there is virtually no propagation to the Eastern states during daylight hours apart for some 20 metre contacts. If you have a beam it might be a different story but Sota contacts have been few. The last decent haul I had was Jan 1st on my last visit to Mt.Randall.
Not sure if you heard about the fires down south of Perth which virtually wiped out the town of Yarloop. I was down on the outskirts of the fire Zone last week and there were miles of power poles burned down and the bush was totally wiped out in places. It was a very hot fire and was huge, I think the perimeter was around 270kms.
Any Europe a bonus tomorrow and we’ll start planning the overnighter on the way home tomorrow.
