I have activated this park in the past. I managed just one contact. Please read the record of my earlier visit to understand why I only achieved one contact. https://vk5bje.com/2013/10/03/mount-remarkable-national-park-3rd-october-2013/
On both the 12th and 22nd of June 2015 I visited the Park again. My 2013 activation was at Alligator Gorge. This time I chose as my first site, Mambray Creek, as we were travelling from Port Pirie to Port Augusta. And my last activation was from Willowie Forest on the Eastern side of the park just off the highway about six kilometres before Melrose driving south.
Mambray Creek 12th June 2015
Contacts on 40 metres, 7.095, were had with, VK5KLV, Les; VK5IS, Ian; VK5PAS; VK2JDL/P2, Phil on SOTA summit, VK2/HU-024; Rob, VK4AAC/P5, Kangaroo Island; David, VK5NQP; Mike, VK6MB/P in VKFF-411, Peak Charles National Park; John, VK5FMJC; Tony, VK5FTVR; Nev, VK5WG; Roy, VK5NRG and Bill, VK5MBD. All my received reports were Q5 except from VK2JDL/P and VK6MB who both gave me Q4. Twelve contacts was a little disappointing but I was too far into Mambray Creek to access the phone network to post my intentions.

Thanks to the 21 operators who successfully gave me a call.
