This summit is a well known Canberra landmark, having a large communications tower, restaurant and observation deck for tourist on top.
Drove into the car park part of the way up, out of the activation zone
You can see the track to the top through the bush and the tower on top. Set out on the track, got to the top after a few minutes walk.
APRS track log of the walk.
Tried 2m ht, nothing...RF overload from the tower. So used the FT817 and the standard whip to work 2m. Made 6 2m contacts, including S2S contacts with VK1NAM Mt Stromlo, VK1NUT, VK1FSTJ Isaacs Ridge and VK1RX Booroombra Rocks.
Lashed the squid pole to the guard rail, and ran the legs to some of the rail and a nearby tree. A 7m squid pole got a few strange looks from passing tourists! Used the summit distance guide as a handy operating table.
Packed up around noon and headed down to nearby Civic for lunch with the girlfriend.
