This morning we left Kingston SE to travel home to the Adelaide Hills. The weather was hot, humid and cloudy and we drove through a number of heavy rain showers. As we got to Salt Creek the sun was shining and I decided it was a great opportunity to add to my earlier contacts and try, at least, to get ten contacts and thus qualify the Park for the VKFF award. I parked the 4×4 in a turn-out on the sea-ward side, that is, just in the Park. There is a notice board nearby which provides details of a walk. The walk is called Nukan Kungun Hike. It is 27k long and eventually reaches the sea at the 42 Mile Crossing.
There is also a small lagoon popular with the birds and bird-watchers.
The interlude with the sun was short-lived and after we left it started to rain and did so until we arrived home.
I have previously activated this park. Here is the link to my blog https://vk5bje.com/category/sa-national-park/coorong-national-park/
My first contact was with VK3MCD/P2, Brian on VK2/SW-013 and also Mount Kosciusko National Park. This contact was at 22:30. Then in succession I had contacts with: VK3EK, Robbie, VK5WG, Nev; VK5IS, Ian; VK5JW, John at Cowell; VK3ARR, Andrew; VK3FCLS, Brett; VK5GJ/QRP, Greg running four watts; VK2UH, Andrew and VK3XL/P2, Mike on VK2/SM-081. After UTC rollover I had contacts with VK3FCLS, Brett; VK5GI, Norm and finally, VK5GJ, Greg, totalling 13 contacts. My first activation resulted in seven contacts. I was ambivalent about stopping in the Park. I had not posted an alert. But I am sure glad I stopped at the Park!
