Monitoring from the Kestrel Creek

Kestrel Creek is in the Melbourne eastern suburb of Templestowe, and bisects the large bushland/recreational Westerfolds Park.
I was in the Park on July 14 2014 for some hiking and as the Eton E5 was on the front seat, I hooked it up to a 3 m random antenna near the Manna Gums car park. In the mid-afternoon I was pleasantly surprised at the high level of spectrum occupancy from all continents, on all bands above 5 MHz!
