"Buddies in the Caribbean" Dominica (J7) DXpedition

The "Buddies in the Caribbean" DXpedition (Team #1) which specializes in 100 watt or less low power radios and the Buddipole portable antenna systems will be on Dominica (J7) February 1-9th, 2011. We plan to stay at the Calibishie Cove hotel ( ) on the north shore of Dominica. The entire mini-DXpedition is limited to equipment that can fit in your airline suitcases ( 75 lbs / 34 kg max).

With J7 licenses, the eight operators are: Budd/J79FF (W3FF), Chris/J79HFP (W6HFP), Dan/J79ZP (WZ1P), Paul/J79AVO (KB9AVO), Mike/J79VG (KC4VG), Steve/J79AT (wG0AT), Wey/J79EA (K8EAB), and Guy/J79UN (N7UN). There will be 3 hotel stations in operation at various times on 160-10 meters using CW, SSB, and RTTY. During the day, several teams will be battery-only, field portable either from Dominica beaches, scenic mountain tops, or national parks. 160m and 80m CW operations are planned, conditions permitting. QSL via LoTW, eQSL, or mail to the operator's home callsign (SASE required).

And the odds are that I might be one of those heard on the air. I'm Paul -- J79AVO one of the operators that will be there on Dominica. I invite all those that read this to listen and work us as this should be totally fun as a DXxpedition. See you on the air
