The team of N2MF, K2NV, W1NG, and K2TQC operated from the "new country" of Curacao Nov 5-11, 2010. We were fortunate to have use of the PJ2T super station and had 28685 QSOs in 6.5 days of operating. I concentrated on the WARC bands and had almost 8000 QSOs giving many a "new one" on those bands. Please QSL direct with SASE ($1or IRC) or via the K2/W2 bureau.
