The trip to Flinders Island had a successful first day on air yesterday and continuing today with S9 signals (LP) on 20M SSB.
Flinders Island is an island off the coast of South Australia. It was named by Matthew Flinders after his younger brother Samuel Flinders, a midshipman on HMS Investigator in 1801. It is part of the Investigator Group and an important Bird Area
The island has been subject to diamond exploration following the discovery of a wide range of kimberlite indicator minerals there. These minerals include chromite, pyrope, diopside, picroilmenite, forsterite, orthopyroxene, as well as small diamonds.
