DX Farm2 Photos

This is another farm we visit out near Bathurst that we go to play radio, e.g. DXing and experimenting,

This is a 950mASL mountain with 360 degree clear horizon, ideal for HF/VHF/UHF/SHF terrestrial & EME DX and contesting

Basic testing from the car, could hear Newcastle 146.775, Somersby 146.725, Maddens Plains 146.850 & 53.650 and Mt.Ginini 146.950
