VK3GK will be active from Island of Eua , (IOTA OC-049), Tonga 3-14 October 2014 as A35RT.
Greetings from the Kingdom of Tonga.
I will be in Tonga from October 3rd-14th 2014, spending approx 10-11 days on the Island of Eua as a volunteer with a Rotary International Humanatarian Project.
Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Cranbourne where I am a member.
We will be building two "houses" (huts) and installing a 2500 metre drinking water pipline from a natural spring into the Agricultural College, located on the Island of Eua.
About 26 volunteers are participating from Australia.
Operation may be a bit sporadic as the main aim is the Rotary Project.
Apart from daily operation for an hour or so, I do hope to be active in the Oceania DX Contest SSB and even possibly in the CW contest the following weekend.
IC-7000, AH4 atu, 32' Vertical, and 135' doublet (hopefully hanging between a couple of palm trees)
All Bands 80m-10m, SSB, CW (and maybe even RTTY )
As there is no QSL BURO on Tonga, QSL via my Home Call, VK3GK, direct (pse inc return postage US$2 and sase) or Buro
I hope to get OQRS up and running.
