If you have a look at a reasonable map of Kangaroo Island there is a dot indicating the highest point on the Island. The dot is on the corner of Playford Highway and Snug Cove Road. The summit is un-named. VK5PAS, PaulĀ and VK5AKH, Andy activated this summit in August 2013 in weather which even the ducks would complain about! We were more fortunate with the weather. It was a warm day and a shirt without jacket was fine.

I was able to enjoy twelve contacts on 7.090 beginning at 04:22: VK5TW, Trevor; VK5ZGY, Greg; VK5GJ, Greg; VK5LI, Craig; VK5FD, Allan; VK3AMB, Bernard; VK5WG, Nev; VK5BC/M5, Brian; VK5KLV, Les; VK3BHR, Phil; VK5FAKV, Shawn and VK5PI, Mark. This is an easy summit, with the high point being just off the road, behind our vehicle, in the trees.
