Mt Glenrowan, vk3/ve-230, 17th March 2013

For my second activation I selected the local summit of Mt Glenrowan VK3/VE-230. Mt Glenrowan is not a very high summit but it does provide interesting views. The views south to Benalla and east across the Ovens Valley to the Alps are uninterrupted. Another plus is Mt Glenrowan is within the Warby Ovens National park so it also counts towards the KRMNPA

The Start

From the car park / picnic area at Taminick Gap it is a fairly easy walk to the summit along a dirt track. For the radio mind the walk takes you past one large radio site and finishes at the radio site at Mt Glenrowan its self,

Operating Position

Once again I chose to do a CW only activation with the same gear as my first trip.

I madeĀ 6 contacts on 40m and this time I was lucky to have vk5cz reply to my CQ on 20m (I had already worked him on 40).
