J7 – Dominica: “Buddies in the Caribbean” 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 are going to Dominica (J7) on February 1-9th, 2011. We plan to stay at the Calibashie 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).
