The 2016 Edition of the J64SLI / 37 ST. LUCIA INDEPENDENCE SPECIAL EVENT (Brought to you courtesy the J6 Portable Group) is done.
J64SLI / 37 commenced operations at 0000utc on 20 Feb 2016 and closed down at 2359utc 24 Feb 2016.
THE J64SLI/37 CALL IS VALID ONLY FOR THE DAYS LISTED.
We operated QRP (5 to 10 Watts) and sometimes low power (50W) using solar/ battery power. Operations were mostly SSB/CW from near Pigeon Point on the northern part of St. Lucia. There were three stations running from the beach. We used a combination of Buddipoles and dipoles, with radials running to the ocean.
PLEASE NOTE: QSL via WB5Q , Please follow the instructions below and honor these requests to allow us to get our Spl Event cards out to you in a timely manner.
QSL requests from the USA or its Territories MUST include a self addressed Stamped BUSINESS SIZE enevolpe for return of the QSL. Please note: The card is a bit larger than normal (4 x 6) so a REGULAR SIZE enevolpe really WON'T do...
Outside of the United States: please include 2 USD or 2 Euros) and a self addressed large return envelope sent along with your QSL card. Any cards received without postal return funds will be returned to you via the bureau (and of course any card sent via the bureau, will be returned to you the same way.)
THANKS TO ALL OUR SPONSORS FOR A SUCCESSFUL EVENT, WE COULD NOT PULL IT OFF EACH YEAR WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT.
ADDENDUM: It goes without saying,(but, I will anyway...) any monatary donations / contributations will also be gratefully apppreciated as we are constantly trying to upgrade our operational conditions, but this is what operating from an island requires! As we grow in experience, we learn, modify and adapt!
AND NOW! for Something Completely Different...
Thank you for visiting my QRZ Page!.
I operate from TWO locations. My HOME QTH is in Norman, (Cleveland Co.) in south central Oklahoma (Grid: em15he).
My SECONDARY operations base (mostly spring and summer) is from the village of Eagle Nest, (Colfax Co.) New Mexico (Grid: DM76in) high in the Sange de Cristo Moutains at 8400 ft (2600 meters) elevation. This qth is surrounded by the tallest mountains in New Mexico ranging up to 13,200 Ft (4800+ Meters). My understanding is that Colfax County is a fairly rare catch for dedicated County Hunters, so if you need Colfax , just send me an email. we can set a sked and make sure you get it!
My home station in Norman consist of a Japan Radio JRC JST-245, a FlexRadio 3000, and a Yaesu FTdx-9000C. A Ten-Tec Omni VII is on line as well. I am using an Ameritron AL-80A amp in conjunction with the above listed Transceivers. Antennas include several Alpha Deltas, a 40M double bazooka , a 15 meter beam and a 6 meter Log Periodic all at 50 ft.
At my New Mexico QTH, I use a Kenwood 480HX ((modified to run 280 watts), a LDG 600 plus tuner, and 2 antennas (a Buddipole set in a vertical configuration and an Alpha Delta DXLB at 50 ft.)
I also enjoy mobile ops and have a wide variety of rigs and antennas, just for that purpose.
Among my other interest (passions, really...) are Stamp Collecting and Trading. I look forward to receiving new, unique and rare stamps from any part of the world and will of course trade or send the same. Should you be interested, just let me know and we can go from there..
I am a life long fan of all things Shortwave. My receiever line up includes a JRC NRD 535D, a Drake R8, a rare Lowe HF 250 Europa and a Grundig 700 portable. It was shortwave that first attracted me to all things radio, my career in broadcast radio as well as amateur radio. I also enjoy trading station air checks and station promotional items from around the world.
If you have any needs or wants either with stamps or having anything to do with shortwave or broadcasting in general, do let me know. I have lots of stuff and of course, I love to trade!
Thats all for now!
Please share our wonderful hobby, there are lots of wannabe Hams out there...who would appreciate knowing more, you just have to share your passion.

PS: Because some have asked: The car pictured on this page is a rare 1988 Lamborghini Jalpa, white on white, one of only 410 ever produced. This car is one of the last 10 produced. A fun ride for a spring or fall morning.
