2019-01-26 Tilligerry State Conservation Area – VKFF-1377

Australia Dy offered the opportunity to use the special AX prefix, so after a bit of google earth and google maps/streetview searching I decided on VKFF-1377.

Wyrrabalong - VKFF-0550 I decided to today to see if I could get three or four "quick fire" parks done. Looking at the forecast yesterday, I noted only a 5% chance of rain. What I didn't notice was the high winds. I also forgot about turning on APRS, so we don't have the travel maps. … Continue reading 2018-11-22 Three parks in a day – Wyrrabalong (VKFF-0550), Munmorah (VKFF-1361) and Brisbane Water (VKFF-0056)
