August 24 – Craig informs DX-World

I will continue to visit OC-228 Granite Island from Friday August 26 at 2300 UTC to Saturday, August 27 at 0800 UTC. (Saturday local time). I am also looking to visit a day earlier on Friday, August 26 at 0430 UTC to 0800 UTC. This is because weather on Friday afternoon local time looks good and I will be taking time off work to try and give out more QSOs on 20m. I am not permitted to build a tent or shelter on the island and so I’m exposed to the weather on a rock wall with no protection from rain. Details at

August 14 — Craig VK5CE will be activating Granite Island OC-228 as VK5CE/P on numerous occasions starting in August 2016. Full details here.
