After many years going to other stations in Carribean and Central America, Once again return in 2010 to operate P40P in the CQ WW SSB
QSL 100% via LOTW
If no LOTW then QSL via the home address in Texas - NO BURO
Flew a 240' wire on kite for 160 in arrl 2002 during 1st night. Conditions were not that great but greatMulti's that night. (1/4 wave vertical near straight up fromthe coax connection.)
The ARRL DX contest 2002 was my 1st ARRL World Low Power Win. Carl and Sue were there providing support with food and drink. What great hosts!! Great food too. Carl was on the CW shortly after the contest getting in his time working JA's on 40.
The 80 kite meter antenna didn't go in 2002 WW The idea was a HIGH dipole rather then holding up a loop. not enough wind OR not enough kite Storm to the west hurt the winds. My Dad (age 73 then) a non-ham went with me on this trip to see the island and cook during the contest. He also brought in the kites Sat morning out of the catus fields. Good help! setup a phased beverage to stateside on 40 for the 2002 cq ww ssb.
Carl P49V has new cottage on P4 !!! - P40P returning in 2010!!
PLEASE qsl via LOTW (Logbook of the World).
In Oct. 2000 P40P set a new World Low Power record in WW SSB. The main event that carried that was 28mhz opening - strong openings into the USA. My Son went with me this trip. He was about 15 at the time. Good cook. I have no idea what he did for the total 48 hours but the food and drink showed up regularly. A comment for what it's worth. The 87A was moved off the table and placed under the couch in shack. out of sight, out of mind for the Low Power operation. The picture of the low power operation is at http://www.qsl.net/w5aj/P40Pstation.htm This is also the operation that I recorded. Someday we'll publish some findings on the UNB vs. recording
In Oct. 2002 P40P set a new World Record for SOHPA in WW SSB. held for a year
