On Saturday 27 August I ventured to Para Wirra Recreation Park (WWFF-1739) with Nigel, VK5NIG to activate this newly added park. We setup toward the top end of the park, not too far from the oval. It was pleasant day – not too cold and nice when the sun was out. After getting setup we made a couple of lazy contacts, Nige on 40m and myself on 20m. At one stage I was working 40m and managed 46 contacts, with a few pile ups to boot. This is the first time I mange managed 44+ contacts in a single activation.
It had been quite a few weeks since I had been out and needed to get a ‘fix’. Work has been extremely busy and I have been working a few weekends, so getting a way for a few hours was great therapy! Thanks to all who came up and gave us a shout and for those who spotted us – very much appreciated.
