Mt Warrenheip and Mt Buninyong, VK3/VC-019 & 018, 15th Sept 2013

These two summits make an easy two summit activation day when visiting Ballarat.

I chose to do Mt Warrenheip first, it may be easier to leave the car at the bottom of the hill and walk up rather than having to walk out and into the activation zone.
I had added a 30m link to the EFHW, this allowed me to use 30mx, which to my joy I made one contact to VK2 on.

It is only a short drive to Mt Buninyong, although I did detour via the local bakery to pick up fresh supplies 🙂

Mt Buninyong has a great picnic area within the activation zone and for the first time ever I had a table and chair to sit at. I ended up with the EFHW running south (fed point to the north) which may have affect performance as I did need to listen a bit harder and had no contacts on either 30 or 20mx.

A great trip with two more summits in my bag, although I need to remember to put the camera in my bag also.
