I will be taking a holiday on Kangaroo Island (IOTA OC-139) with the family, staying at Emu Bay on the north coast for a week starting the 10th of October through to the 16th of October 2016. I will be operating part time from the island as VK5GR/P. My principle interest is digital modes so you will mostly find me using RTTY, PSK, MFSK and any other digital mode that people want me to try! I can of course do SSB as well and depending on conditions you may find me there as well.

I will be using a multi-band fan dipole and have capability on at least 80m-15m (although 30 and 17m might not work very well). If I have room the 160m elements may also get added to the antenna. The rig is a Kenwood TS-690 with 100W.

I will prepare a special QSL card for the occasion (going to wait till I get home as I want to take some photos of KI to add to the card).

Ultimately this is a family holiday so operation will be spasmodic. I will post to the clusters when I am around so people know where to find me.

If you hear me calling CQ IOTA OC-139 please give me a call!

Grant, VK5GR
