I was late arriving at the summit of Mt Majura partly due to forgetting what a long walk it is. For some reason I had 30 mins in my mind but obviously I was mixing it up with other summits in vk1 because it took more like 50 mins this time.
I made most of the contacts on 40m plus a few on 20 and 12m.
There were quite a number of family groups, walkers, runners and cyclists on the summit during the 2 hours I was there. I wonder if one of them picked up my reading glasses without realising they were mine.
I was also puzzled by a comment from some walkers I passed on the way up. They suggested I should have identification to prove I was doing something legal and legitimate. Perhaps reflecting their past employment they seemed to think someone with a radio was rather suspicious.
I pointed out that mobile phones are radios and have access to anywhere in the world, with GPS and other functions that are far more powerful than a simple voice and morse radio. We chatted amicably for a few minutes and departed in our separate directions afterwards.
16 contacts made.
Some photos taken on the return trip.
