Portable Ultralight DXing Session - 25/02/2021 - Conara Park
Benjafield Park: This was my preferred location as it was close to where I was working for the day. When I drove past, the council were mowing and had the car park blocked. Based on this I kept driving.
Granton Park: This is near the entry to Hobart, I was unable to stop due to the flow of traffic and being in the wrong lane.
Ross Bridge Park: I pulled up and started to setup but found that somebody had dumped some rubbish near the tables, the smell from this was disgusting.
Pedder Street Park: I drove past but found that the picnic table had been removed, not allowing anywhere to setup.
Conara Park: This was my last location, I found a parking spot and setup on a table. I logged 14 stations, all were as I would expect with 3CR on 855kHz being a bit of a surprise, for a 3.5KW station, it had a good signal. 3GG on 531kHz was also logged at a good signal levels and with the help of my 3” FSL, it’s callsign and station slogan was logged well.
Over all it was an enjoyable session and gave me a nice break on the drive home.
