Returning to Mt Ritchie, VK3/VC-003

After my unsuccessful activation of Mt Ritchie earlier in the month today I went back out and climbed Mt Ritchie again. This time I remembered my radio and the activation was a success. I made 10 QSOs on 40m and two on 20m. All contacts were also made from the Yarra Ranges National Park to assist chasers for VKFF, KRMNPA or WWFF awards.

The equipment was FT817ND and link dipole strung in a gum tree. Logging was via VK port-a-log.
