Australian National Parks and ACT Nature Reserves

My interest in portable operations extends to operating amateur radio equipment from Australian National Parks and local Nature Reserves.  SOTA peaks located within a National Park boundary have a secondary benefit in qualifying for the radio amateur VKFF National Parks Award program.
