Welcome to VK1DA’s blog.
I’m Andrew Davis. VK1DA is my amateur radio callsign, which was allocated to me by the Australian Government once I satisfied the requirements for an amateur radio licence.
For more details of amateur radio licencing in Australia, please see my VKFAQ website.
The equipment was set up and taken down each day as I was not able to stay overnight. The morning temperature on Sunday was about 5 which was much warmer than it could have been. Some contacts into Sydney on 2m and 70cm, with an attempted contact on 23cm with Adrian VK2FZ. Contacts made around town on all bands and a visit from Ian VK1FOTO (later VK1IS), John VK1JST and Charles VK1CM. Power was from the GMC 950va alternator.
