ST. LUCIA INDEPENDENCE SPECIAL EVENT brought to you through the courtesy of the J6 Portable Group.

The 2015 edition of the St. Lucia Independence Special Event:  J64SLI / 36. has been completed and is in the books!

 The event officially ran from UTC Saturday 21 Feb 2015 thru UTC Monday 23 Feb 2015. We ran QRP @ 5 - 10 Watts, strictly operating on Solar Power.  once again we were using  Buddipoles and dipole antennas in a variety of configurations, all directly on the beach with the radials running into the ocean! Operations were  CW, SSB, PSK-31 and RTTY.

QSL VIA WB5Q , follow the qsl instructions below.

The cards have been filling up the mailbox as of late.. Here are a few request to allow us to get our Spl Event cards out to you in a timely manner.  IF you need a QSL from the first time event (J6SLI/35  #35OR  (J64SLI/36  #36), please adhere to the following guidelines: QSL requests from the USA or its Territories MUST include a self addressed Stamped  Business Size enevolpe  for return of the QSL. Please note:  it is a larger than normal card (4 x 6) so a regular 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.)

This event was sponsored and funded in part by the following organizations and individuals::

Buddipole Company / Budd Drummond W3FF

ACARC (Aeronautical Center ARC) Oklahoma City, OK

SCARS (South Canadian ARS) Norman, OK

Butch Weber WA4GIF / Solar Panels

ADDENDUM: It goes without saying, any monatary donations 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 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!

I have alway had an abiding interest in Exotic Cars, The 1988 Lamborghini Jalpa (one of only 410 ever produced) pictured at the top of this page is both a rare and exciting automobile that really highlighs the Italian approach to supercars...

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.
