      NEW UPDATE: 7:40pm (ACDT) 12th July – final preparations for the VK5KI expedition are complete. We have confirmed with the owner and the weather for the ferry crossing looks excellent. With luck we will have fine weather in the afternoon and get all of the antennas up tomorrow. If all goes well we should appear on air, most likely on 40m first sometime tomorrow night our time. Watch the DX Clusters and out Clublog live feed for details.

        Folks, just a note that the LiveLog stream appears to be dropping QSOs randomly. Not sure why. Full log uploads will be done every 12hrs or so. Please try not to dupe us too many times as our time here on KI is limited.

              Hello Alex! A bit more info for you, this time it is a one man show - and operating times will be less as this is much more a family holiday. I am planning on taking a multi-band vertical as a minimum but may also take the HexBeam, but it will be on an armstrong (manual) rotator. There is a very small chance some 6m activity may also occur. 73 de Grant VK5GR / VK5KI

                Hello Everyone, VK5KI is nearly packed and ready to go. I should be on air by the 12th of January from Kangaroo Island. I am going to attempt some 160m FT8 and CW operation while down there as well as 80-6m. This is a holiday style activation so I wont be on air all the time. Keep a watch on the website for details of activity planned. https://vk5gr-iota.net/
