Bob and Doris ham it up at the Apin Apin dam... just before we drove over the dam enroute to Eagle Plateau.

This is the Apin Apin drive through fast food restaurant! Really!

We stop to visit with old friends Senny 9M6IQ and Stephen 9M6ET (on left) and their 3 children.

Here is the entrance to the Hillview hamshack... and the grand opening plaque from 4 years ago. 

Running a pileup as 9M6OO!

The "OFFICIAL" CQ Bar! Sponsored by CQ Magazine... and a view of the CQ Bar just to the left of the pool.

Here is the outdoor mushroom where occasionally a radio has been placed outdoors. The Rafflesia
Tower with the C3 antenna on top can be seen in both photos.

On the left is the 6 meter / WARC tower.  Stacked M2 6 meter beams and an A3W with 30 meter add-on kit is mounted fixed north below. 
On the right is the main primary tower at Hillview with 2 element HyGain 40 meter beam on top and a 4 element  Cushcraft CD204 20 meter beam
just below it. Also, the visible wire is a leg of the 80 meter inverted vee... There is also a 160 meter inverted vee up there somewhere.
