Here are some results from the activation weekend for the 2nd year anniversary of the VK5 National & Conservation Parks Award, sponsored by the Adelaide Hills Amateur Radio Society.
The weekend was held on Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th March 2015.
There were a total of 111 park activations, and of those 81 were unique parks (in other words different parks). South Australia was well represented with parks being activated in the Far North, the South East, the Riverland, the Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, the Adelaide metropolitan area, and the Yorke Peninsula.
A total of 41 amateurs took part as activators (a number were AHARS members). Below is a list of those who headed out into the field:-
I would like to thank all the amateurs who took part in the weekend, both park activators and park hunters.
A special thanks to Tony VK3VTH/5 and Tim VK3MTB/5 who crossed the border to activate South Australian parks.
It was very pleasing to hear a number of first time park activators including Greg VK5GJ and Norm VK5GI, who activated parks on the Fleurieu Peninsula, and Roy VK5NRG who ventured out with David VK5KC.
Congratulations also to the five Foundation operators who took part as activators.
