This morning managed to contact Peter VK3ZPF/P on SOTA summit North Hells Gate,VK3/VT-050. 2 points 693m.
He was a good 5 by 8 signal on 40m. Later on he tried coming up on 80m. I could hear some of the stations he was working but not him, guess a bit late in the day. The summit is 415km away.
Looks like VK1 may get the go ahead for SOTA from 1st February, so must get my own SOTA station in order.
