XR2A – Valparaiso, Chile

    • Message from Esteban Asenjo, XQ7UP

    December 11 & 12th, the Punta Angeles Lighthouse (ARLHS CHI-001) will be active on the ARRL 10m Contest with the callsign XR2A, and we are evaluating if we are present also in the other bands for DX. This contact will be valid for all Lighthouse Awards, including Chilean Lighthouse Award (Diploma Faros de Chile). This is a historic Lighthouse located in Valparaiso, Chile.

    Last February 27th, a group of hams including me where transmitting when the Chilean earthquake occured. Next weekend we come back to the lighthouse to finish our pending activation of the lighthouse. The Team of Operators are: CA3SDF – CE3MMT – CE3TKV – CE3NQV – CE3DOH – XQ7UP. The QSL manager is CE3BBC direct only.
