Drove up Mt Ainslie and parked off the final bend in the road before the summit. From the map I had estimated this to be outside the activation zone, a check of the GPS showed just on 800m, so over the 25m limit. Walked up the road, getting a few odd looks from joggers and cyclists as I had on a weekend pack with a pole sticking out of it :)
Reached the summit car park
Started on 2m, worked several locals and then switched to 40m. Found Al, VK1RX on Mt Tuggeranong, also Andrew VK1NAM on Mt Coree so some S2S contacts. Worked heaps of VK1s, Vk3s, and a VK5 and a VK7. Total of 28 contacts. A few tourists and joggers wandered past, had a chat to one who wanted to know what I was doing, gave him a brief rundown on SOTA. Seemed to quieten down around noon so packed up and went home for lunch. An enjoyable morning playing portable radio.
