VKFF-1383 Tuggerah State Conservation Area

On May 31, I headed off to another local park that I've previously activated just under two years ago. I've only put two APRS maps in as it really is local. Indeed you can see the local knowledge to avoid traffic in the first map (as well as the trip back for coffee at the … Continue reading VKFF-1383 Tuggerah State Conservation Area

VKFF-1983 – Palm Grove Nature Reserve

Today I headed out to Palm Grove for a fourth time (one more for boomerang) with the thought that I just needed ten contacts to make it count as a return park. Where I go in Palm Grove is on the Great Northern Walk. APRS Palm Grove Nature Reserve is relatively local, about a 30 … Continue reading VKFF-1983 – Palm Grove Nature Reserve

2020-03-21 John Moyle Memorial Field Day (Bouddi NP – VKFF-0049)

I was getting itchy feet as I hadn't done an activation since January, and that was the day at Mount Elliot with the Club. I decided to do my six hours for the field day in VKFF-0049, as this would make it the third park (of five required) that I have five qualifying activations for … Continue reading 2020-03-21 John Moyle Memorial Field Day (Bouddi NP – VKFF-0049)

2019-11-30 VKFF Activation Weekend -Wyrrabalong National Park (VKFF-0550)

Today was the first day of the annual VKFF Activation challenge. You bet I was going out today. I had grand plans for doing multiple parks a good distance from home. Those plans died with the weather. Relatively strong winds when I left home and a 70% chance of rain. I really wanted to go … Continue reading 2019-11-30 VKFF Activation Weekend -Wyrrabalong National Park (VKFF-0550)

2019-10-26 VKFF Team Challenge – Munmorah SCA (VKFF-1361)

That time of year again. VKFF Team Challenge! Again I joined forces with Gerard (VK2IO). This year we entered as The QRParktivators. As the name implies, we did QRP again. The advantage about that is that we can get away with being relatively close geographically without interfering too badly, as long as if we are … Continue reading 2019-10-26 VKFF Team Challenge – Munmorah SCA (VKFF-1361)
