SOTA VK2/IL-002 Wingecarribee

From Bowral, drove South East along Kangaloon Road until reaching Trig Station Lane on the right.

Note Trig Station Lane does not take your to the trig.. This is a fairly narrow lane, parked at one of the few spots with enough room to get off the road and walked

The road passes a property on the right then takes you up the hill, passing to the right of the summit.

The summit is on private property. As per previous activators took advantage of the 25 m activation zone rule to get around this. The road runs parallel to the 830 m contour, and as the summit is 849 m, you are just inside the activation zone. The GPS confirmed I was at 830 m. Set up the squid pole on the property fence

SOTA station on the tarp at the base of the fence post. The radio was in some shade but I wasn't...

Got on 40 m. As around midday signals were not the best, a struggle to work some chasers. No S2S contacts. After 12 contacts had enough of the sun and packed up.

Track log of walk.
