St. Eustatius DXpedition 2011

After the contest…

Posted on 2011-10-31 in Lates News | by

Janusz SP6IXF worked in the contest using the callsign PJ5/SO6X. He operated about 25 hours making over 3000 QSOs. There were not many EU callers while the W/VE pileups were tremendous.

During the (right after the contest) they had a havy tropical storm again: strong wind and heavy rain. Antenna was jerked by a strong wind and finally the rope which was fixing the antenna was untied. In the wind antenna turned many times breaking the feeder. Fortunately it was easy to repair. Two days ago there was also a problem with the DRAKE L75. It was a problem with the relay but –  blessing in disguise - it was possible to solve this failure as it was only necessary to clean the contacts of the relay.

So Janusz and Wlodek still have a few days on the Island and they keep working on bands. During last days they received DXpedition support from next HAM friends. Big THANK YOU goes to: DJ4GJ, HB9CWA, IK7YZG, JA1BK, JA1GCA, K3RYA, ON4JM, SP1NY, SP2JKC, SP9JZU, W1DYJ and the SP DX Club.
