I am now on 160m in St. Martin. I will try to get on CW every night and will be here until the end of April, 2016. I will operate split and please bear with me as I am using a straight key and logging by myself, so I will be a little slow. Please adjust your speed to mine as I am not a speed demon. I will try to work s many of you as I can as I believe I am the only one on PJ7 operating on 160 meters.
My USA license is K2GSJ, however when I am at my second QTH in St. Martin, I operate as PJ7TM. Please check K2GSJ for my background information.
Equipment here in St. Martin is a Kenwood TS 440S and a Hy-gain Patriot 640 vertical on the roof of the house. I also have an inverted V for 160m. I mostly operate SSB on 10 through 20 meters, but also can be found on 160, 40 and 30 meters CW. I am usually in St Martin five months a year.
I participated with the Buddipole Caribbean Dxpedition to Montserrat from April 8th thru the 16th, 2012. My call during the dxpedition was VP2MTM.
Best QSL route for PJ7TM and contacts made with VP2MTM is via: Tom Metz, 10 Montauk Avenue Extension, Sag Harbor, NY 11963. I QSL 100% on all received cards. I do not use LOTW or EQSL. Please provide a SASE or 2 green stamps and SAE, otherwise, I will not respond to QSL cards. Please do not send IRCs. Some of the bureau QSLs take very long to get to me, so try to send your QSLs direct. Thank you.
I refused to work a number of stations that consistently and deliberately break into an existing QSO, or when they call out of their turn in a "pile up", when I have called out a specific geographical area or when I call a station with only partial call letters. I very much understand when people make mistakes, because we all do. But when a station continues with the malpractice of constantly calling, even after being asked to stop, then there is no excuse for such behavior. I just note the call and no matter how many times I am called by the station, I will not respond to it. You stand a far better chance of making it into the log by respecting the DX code of conduct! When fellow hams continue this bad practice after being asked nicely and repeatedly to stop, I then just go QRT as it stops being fun anymore.
Please follow the DX code of conduct.
