On 26th February 2017 I activated the Greenhill Recreation Park VKFF-1712, which overlooks the city of Adelaide in South Australia.

The park is located just down the road from Yarrabee Road Greenhill, which was heavily impacted during the 1983 ‘Ash Wednesday’ bushfires.  Over 3,700 homes and buildings were destroyed and 75 people lost their lives in South Australia and Victoria.  Of those, five people died at Yarrabee Road, Greenhill.

I made a total of 70 contacts in the log on 80, 40, and 20m from VK1, VK2, VK3, VK4, VK5, VK6, VK7, New Zealand, Slovak Republic, Japan, Italy, Slovenia, and Belgium.  There was a small opening on 20m long path to Europe.
