Due to scheduling problems and surgery being scheduled for an intended
renter (not a SE USA ham), the PJ4G fabulous contest location and
station is unexpectedly available for next month's ARRL DX CW. On site
are great antennas and a FT1000MP Mark V and an AL1200. All you would
need to take would be laptops and any additional transceivers or amps
you might need. At the time we left in November, the only antenna work
needed for ARRL DX would be to put out a temporary beverage for the US
if you desired to have one (highly recommended). There has been a
second amp there, but it is not in working condition now. You can fly
there on American through San Juan or through Curacao with a local
carrier for the last leg. The latter may require an overnight stop each
way in Curacao. You can also fly there via Aruba and then on a local
carrier, but I haven't done that yet. This is the station where PJ4A
with K4BAI, N4TO, and K1TO operating, set the all-time world record for
M/S in CQ WW CW 2006 and I came in #3 in the world in ARRL DX CW SOAB in
2007. Jeff, KU8E, Don, W4OC, Hal, N4GG, Fred, WW4LL, and I think K9MUG
have operated from this rental location too.
If interested, let me know and I'll give you all the information I have.
Reservations and arrangement should be made with K2NG by e-mail.
