Saint Lucia mini-DXpedition

Rob, N7QT, will be heading back to Saint Lucia on a suitcase mini-DXpedition as J6/N7QT between April 5-16th. He will be using the new CrankIR portable antenna system from SteppIR. Operator Frans, J69DS, will join him.

Their operational base will be a magnificent villa located in Babonneau, which overlooks the city of Gros Isle and Cap Estate. Their goal is to demonstrate "ultralite" DXpeditions from magnificent "vista" locations.

The operation's equipment will include a field portable radio (battery only) and using backpack/lightweight antennas.

Activity will be on 80-10 meters using CW, SSB and RTTY or PSK, as well
as operating field portable (battery only) either from the St. Lucia beaches or scenic mountain tops. During field portable operations, they
will sign their callsigns /P.

QSL J6/N7QT via LoTW, eQSL, by the Bureau, or direct to his home callsign (SASE required!). J69DS will only accept direct QSLs with a SASE. NO Bureau QSLs!
