Hi Ian,
Good to work you on 2m FM, I wasn't confident my signal would work it's way around Mt Oakey.  The path to Dingi Dingi would be indirect and involve a few reflections.

With the SOTA winter bonus season ending soon had a look at other close by summits that can claim the points. Baldy Range, VK2/ST-008 is an 8 pointer and is not too far from home, so gave it a go. You can access it via the Ba...
