Currently operating from San Andres Island as part of the 5J0X DX team. 5J0X logs are uploaded to Clublog daily. They will be uploaded to LoTW when we return to the states and receive an LoTW certificate from the ARRL. If you want a QSL card see the 5J0X listing on www.QRZ.com for details.
If you worked HK0/W4VAB from San Andres check Clublog or eQSL to see if you are in the log. I will upload the log to LoTW when I receive an LoTW certificate from ARRL. If you would like to receive a card send your card and an SASE. It you are outside the USA (and Canada was outside the USA the last time I checked) either send one of the new IRCs, or $2.00 to cover postage. I will also QSL by the bureau.
On San Andres the station that I am using consists of an Elecraft KX3, a Ten-Tec Model 418 100 watt amplifier, and LNR Precision EndFedz antennas for 10, 15, and 20/40. Thanks to LNR for making them available.
The other station used by the 5J0X team consists of an Elecraft K3, an Elecraft KPA500 500 watt amplifier, and a CrankIR antenna that will tune 80 through 10 meters.
We have another KX3 and a KPA100 as back up.

Prefer to QSL by LoTW but will reply to QSL cards sent by the bureau. If you QSL by mail please provide an SASE or SAE with sufficient postage to return my card to you. If you are not located in the United States the cost of an international stamp is $1.10.
