WIA Summer VHF-UHF Field Day contest 14th January 2012

The CCARC took part in the recent contest near Warrah Trig on the Central Coast Peninsula near Patonga.

Thanks to all who came up for an enjoyable if rather WET day!

There was a lot less activity than last year when we were at Cap’n Cook’s Lookout, in fact we worked as much last year on 6m & 70cm as we did this year on 6m, 2m & 70cm, so it shows how the weather impacted available stations and we only worked 6 hours last year and 8 hours this.

This does appear to be a good location however – both from take-off and space available – perhaps it’s worth considering again for another contest?
