The VK9 (Australian external territories) call area now has summits classified under SOTA as follows -
- 1 summit on Christmas Island.
- 2 summits on Norfolk Island.
- 4 summits on Lord Howe Island
Congratulations to Wayne VK3WAM who gathered his gear together quickly and headed up to a local summit when he heard that the Norfolk Island VK9NT DXpedition had decided to activate the new SOTA summit today (Thursday), earlier than the originally planned Saturday.
Wayne has already posted a blog with pictures describing the action - http://waynemerry.wordpress.com/2013/05/09/activation-of-mt-dandenong-first-summit-2-summit-with-norfolk-island/
