Monday SOTA activation with Andrew VK1AD, David VK5KC, & Trevor VK5ATQ.
On Monday morning, Andrew VK1AD (VK1NAM) took myself, David VK5KC, & Trevor VK5ATQ out to activate Mount Stromlo VK1/ AC-043.
After leaving Stromlo we paid a visit to one of the local cafes where we enjoyed some nice hot coffee and a bowl of soup. Fortunately there was a bottle shop next door, so I quickly rushed in there to buy a bottle of South Australian red for Andrew VK1NAM and Andrew VK1DA in recognition of their efforts in taking us out for some portable action. It was a lot of fun.
