5J0BV – San Andres Island

    Dennis, K7BV is again returning to San Andres Island (NA-033) between June 10 – 21, 2010

    After good solid efforts to activate this difficult DXCC entities on 6 meters with mixed results during 2008 and 2009 Es seasons, it is time for the propagation gods to favor me! So, I will head back to San Andres Island for a third time in June 2010 to see if the old saying “Three Times is a Charm” is really true. I will again have the new M2 6M8GJ 8 element 42′ boom yagi. That yagi combined with a functional KW amplifier will ensure that many more of the Deserving put this DXCC entity in their log. The two openings to Europe last year with only 100 watts convinced me coming back in 2010 was a must-do. Together, you on your end of the opening and me on mine, we shall prove that San Andres Island in not “One Hop Too Far.”
