As I was driving down to the Centre Victorian Radiofest at Kyneton, decided to try activating Mt Glenrowan, VK3/VE-230 on the way. It is clearly visible from the Hume Highway as you drive past Glenrowan. Turned on APRSdroid on my Android phone after lunch at Wodonga for the chasers to track me and made my way there. Drove up Taminik Gap Rd and parked at the start of the walk.
The sign said 9.4 Km return so looks like about a 4 km walk each way. Despite the threat of rain and 30c temperature set off.
View towards Wangaratta, could see the twin Service stations on the Hume Highway below.
After 50 minutes walking reached the summit. Communications tower and trig.
I had my extension pole, but as the trig was nice and high just tied my dipole to the top, supporting the legs on a couple of trees nearby.
