Desecheo DX News – QRT

    And so… it’s over..  The K5D 2009 Desecheo Island DXpedition is in the history books.

    Every one of our goals was exceeded; most significantly, the number of QSOs.  Total Qs: 115,728!

    Because our Special Use Permit (SUP) expires today, and because of the size/complexity of the infrastructure to dismantle, we decided to use helicopters to clear the island.  Flights began at 1100Z and will continue until all gear and personnel are safely back in Puerto Rico.

    Return here to our website for final photos and operations statistics later today or tonight.

    Thanks to all who worked and helped us; we think we’ve driven KP5 Desecheo to near the bottom of the “most wanted” list!
