VK4KAY Warwick (Home station) 1.2 2.4 3.4 GHz

I’ve also shared with the GCARS and Bayside Groups – both have indicated that they will be active on 1.2 and 2.4. As soon as I have details, I will share.

In addition, I did a reccie to Mt Kanigan yesterday. Operating from the highest point near the Weather Radar is impossible, and it’s made abundantly clear. But I will be able to set up near the Telstra and Comms towers, with a very clear take-off to the south.
