Maungamangero : ZL1/WK-050

This is a hilltop that I am fortunate enough to have access to via work. We have a land mobile repeater at this site to provide voice coverage for our staff in the field. This area is generally closed to visitors and trampers due to a rare frog living in the area. You may be able to convince DoC that you will take the necessary precautions however so dont let me put you off.

Contacts were short and quick due to me being at work but I managed to make 3 contacts on 2 metres and 3 more on 40 metres before packing up due to our taxi arriving soon.
