Remarks: 
Corny Point is a three hour drive from Adelaide and is located on the bottom of the Yorke Peninsula. It was named Corny Point by Captain Flinders in 1802 due to the fact that it looks like a growth on the toe of the Yorke Peninsula. On Friday evening (18th Oct 2013) I drove down to the beach at Corny Point and set up my gear, hoping to get some contacts on the 7130 DX Net. It was a really warm evening, so shorts & t-shirt & thongs were in order. I found a nice little parking spot on Lighthouse Road, which had some steps leading down to the beach. There were no issues with lighting, as there was a full moon. The beach was beautiful and sandy and there was just a very gentle breeze coming in off the Spencer Gulf. I ran QRP for this activation with the Yaesu FT817nd, 2.5 watts and a linked dipole. I made a total of 15 QSOs on 40m into VK2, VK3, VK4, VK5, VK7, USA & New Zealand.
