Turallo Nature Reserve VKFF-2750

With sunny weather Monday and rain forecast for the rest of the week decided to get out and activate a couple of WWFF parks. Needed to return to Turallo Nature Reserve for 44, so headed out to Bungendore. The reserve is just South of the town on the Hoskinstown Rd. Entrance to the park through a gap in the fence near a gate.

Sign about the reserve, protecting endangered plants.

Used the sign to support the squid pole, and set up the station on the table near it. Ran out the linked dipole to the nearby fence

Shack on the table. Being mid winter only around 10c, but felt warm in the sun. Given the lack of shade certainly better than a summer activation, and no flies.

Got on 40m. On 7.144 heard VK2BYF Bob and VK2HBG Gerald portable at Batemans Bay, activating VKFF-1406 Batemans Marine Park. They were a S9+ signal, excellent given the lack of NVIS skip recently. Batemans Bay is only around 80 Km away from Bungendore.

Worked them and set up on 7.150. Worked VK3PF, VK5MAZ, ZL1BQD, VK2DJP.

A contact with VK5PAS Paul activating a silo for Silos On the Air, VK- PKE5 Peake silo.

Tried going to 20m. Worked Marty VK4KC, VK4MAD, VK4DOG again, but no other hunters.

Packed up and headed to Bungendore for lunch.
