Information

Update January 10: Grant, VK5GR, posted the following on his Web page on January 7th [edited]: "Final antenna packing lists are being drawn up today, and at this stage, I hope to also include an inverted L for 160m. Having tried to operate 160m at home recently I decided I was silly not to give it a go in a much more RF quiet location with a better antenna, a better ground plane. I will try and pay attention in particular to my morning grey-line into Europe, but will also do some activity during the NA morning grey-line as well. Only 4 days to go before we depart Adelaide and head down to IOTA OC-139. See you on the air!" JUST REMINDER: Grant has stated, "This time it will be more holiday (with the family) and less radio..... Activity will be a combination of CW, SSB and FT8, possibly with some RTTY and PSK thrown in for fun. I also hope to put VK5KI on air during the WIA Summer VHF/UHF field day on 6m/2m/70cm (and maybe 23cm).


Update December 27: Grant, VK5GR, posted the following on his Web page on December 17th [edited]: "As announced in October, I am heading back to Kangaroo Island over the summer holidays with the family. This time it will be more holiday and less radio, however I am taking the station down with me and will be down there for nearly 2 weeks as opposed to 5 nights. I hope to be active on 40/30m with a vertical, 20-6m with my Hex Beam and possibly 80m with a dipole. There is a chance 160m might get activated as well (depending on what gear I can fit into the car). This is a single op trip holiday style. I will be down there from the 11th to the 22nd of January. Most likely operating hours will be evenings and mornings. Daytime will be spent with the family and touring the island. I will run the live logging into Clublog for the activity to help you find me. OQRS will be available via Charlies, M0OXO, and logs will be loaded to Charles at least daily. QSL cards are already available so there will be no waiting for this one. Activity will be a combination of CW, SSB and FT8, possibly with some RTTY and PSK thrown in for fun. I also hope to put VK5KI on air during the WIA Summer VHF/UHF field day on 6m/2m/ 70cm (and maybe 23cm). With the 90m elevation we will have I hope to be heard at least up in Adelaide. Worst case I will take some gear mobile up to Stokes Hill for the day (200m elevation). See you on the air from VK5KI Kangaroo Island - OC-139!"


Grant, VK5GR, posted the following on his Web page on October 12th [edited]: "We are returning to Kangaroo Island (OC-139) - January 11-22nd, 2021 -- After a successful trip in July 2020, I will be returning to Kangaroo Island in January for a longer break. This will be a part time holiday style operation, while we spend 2 weeks over the summer holidays away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The nature of the station that will be taken hasn't been decided yet. As we get closer, details of what bands and modes will be active will be announced."
