Remarks: 
Perfect weather, perfect location and great propagation made this activation very special. 20 and 40 metres were working well around Australia and over to New Zealand. I parked at Woorim beach car park (beach access 1) at the south east of Bribie Island and walked two kilometres north along the beach which took 25 minutes. I wanted to make sure I was in the Bribie Island national park boundaries as this was both a parks (VKFF-0053, VK-1485) and beaches on the air activation. In the 1st hour I made 35 contacts on 20 metres and the 2nd hour I made 38 contacts on 40 metres. I used the squid pole to support the inverted V fan dipole. I used my headphones as I was close to the beach and the noise of breaking waves was quite loud.
