QTH: Capricho Beach House

Tom, KC0W informs DX-World readers that after a substantial wait he has been given approval for YS2/KC0W by El Salvador’s licensing authority.

El Salvador is not rare at all but I hope to offer band fills for fellow CW enthusiasts especially in Asia & Europe. The DXpedition will be QRV during February 16-22, 2019. Bands 6 – 80 meters CW only. Running 1kW to homebrew 40 and 20 meter phased arrays. All other bands will be single verticals. I will be operating from the same beach QTH which HU2DX used in 2012 for their remarkable 45,000+ QSO DXpedition“.

  3. Be careful! There are various sockets with 115 and 230 volts! There are two phases, but can also have the US power outlet 230 V or the European standard 115 V. Good luck
