2019-03-16 Brisbane Water National Park (VKFF-0056) John Moyle Memorial Field Day

I had long wanted to activate for the John Moyle Memorial Field Day from a park. I wanted to find a spot with a good takeoff that wasn't too far from home. Previously I'd activated VKFF-0056 from Somersby Falls, and while that was a nice spot and propagation was OK, it really was down in … Continue reading 2019-03-16 Brisbane Water National Park (VKFF-0056) John Moyle Memorial Field Day
