Hi folks.

I’m Bruce Brady, K5TEN and I will be activating Dog Island, (IOTA NA-085) June 2nd thru June 14th, 2019 with the call sign K4D.

EL 79 is a rare grid with very few locals and 85% salt water. Dog Island is rare because the year-round locals have decided they can control who can and cannot stay on the island. This is no different than a government entity saying who can and who cannot stay on the island. In other words NO TOURISTS, and you must have a contact to stay on the island. I have activated this grid in since 2014 but this year I will be mostly digital modes, and then SSB. Emphasis on FT8 mode and SSB.

I cannot tell you how many hams appreciate a shot at EL79.

Operation will be 100 watts ICOM 7100, and an off center fed dipole for 40 thru 6 meters.

I will also be active during the ARRL June VHF Contest as K4D.

Please help me get the word out.
