Next National Park Activation/s
October 11-17 : 4 Outback National Parks (VK2) are planned to be activated. This will be a 2500km return trip from
Melbourne to "Corner Country" in Outback New South Wales. Corner Country is the meeting point
of 3 VK States: New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland. The area is somewhat remote
desert country and road conditions can change very quickly following rain, so it is not unusual for
road closures at very short notice. Once the road or track has been declared "closed" it is illegal to
travel on that section, so my destinations and times may change according to the weather!
Sunday October 12: Yanga National Park VKFF-554
Monday October 13: Mungo National Park VKFF-370
Tuesday October 14: Kinchega National Park VKFF-263
Wednesday October 15: Sturt National Park VKFF-470
Thursday October 16: Sturt National Park VKFF-470
Friday October 17: Sturt National Park VKFF-470
I will be looking for both VK & DX Contacts to qualify these parks for VK/WWFF
I plan to use 7.144 and 14.244 for the trip however if EU QRM is difficult, I may use 14.330.
7.144 will be monitored while mobile so please feel free to give me a call to check on progress-- or
lack of----. as the case may be!
Times: Not scheduled on this trip however I will be working VK then DX LP EU Opening.
VK may be slow as most of activation is midweek.
November 14-16 : The annual Keith Roget Memorial National Park Award (KRMNPA) activation weekend will be
held across this period. As of today (Sept. 11), 24 VK3 National Parks are registered to be
activated across the state of Victoria. Parks will be activated on multiple bands by operators from
VK2 , VK3 & VK5. Activations will include some of the "rarer" Parks not often activated, so this
weekend is a "must" for all National Park Hunters. More details will be available from the
KRMNPA Yahoo Group https://au.groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/krmnpa/info or this QRZ page.

Mimosa Rocks VKFF-317
VK3VTH is a modest Low Power (100Watt / Battery) station situated in the small village of Dereel 100km West of Melbourne at altitude 350m ASL. Antennas are located on a small property known as "HAM HILL". I enjoy Contesting and DXing. I can also often be heard operating "Portable" in one of VK3's 45 National Parks and from King Island OC-233 during the ILLW from the Currie Light House. 73! Tony
