Grenada 2014 6 Meter DXpedition
In June 2014 my wife and I traveled to the island of Grenada (J3). We stayed on the north shore (Atlantic Ocean). I operated only 6 Meters and worked over 1,000 stations in 57 DXCC's. I have received hundreds of QSL cards with most saying that I was a 'New One". Thank you for the cards and QSO's. I have sent QSL cards to all stations I have received QSL cards. If you have not received my card, please e-mail me at my address listed under W9DR.
Below is a photo of three Grenada residents (who are Hams) and myself. From left to right are J35X Derek, myself, W9DR Dave, J39JF Joy, J39AH Allan. Derek will be back on 6 Meters in 2015. He is a great CW Op! Thanks to Derek for helping me get my J3 license and operating 6 Meters while I was there. We all had a great time.
6 Meter DXpedition to British Virgin Islands VP2V June 2013
I have finished sending out all QSL cards (over 1,000 cards) as of today, 10-20-13. If you have sent me a QSL card direct (QRZ address of W9DR) and have not received my card, please e-mail me at my QRZ e-mail address under W9DR.
Thank you for all the QSO's from the British Virgin Islands on 6 Meters. I worked over 1,600 stations, 72 DXCC's and had over 800 QSO's into Eu. Most of the cards received said I was a "New One" for them. It is great! I will send a card to all from whom I receive a card and are in my log.
73, VP2V/W9DR, Dave
The picture in the upper right (click on it to enlarge) is a 6 Meter Home Brew Water Cooled Amplifier. 2 watts of drive yields 1,200 Watts out. It uses a single NXP LDMOSFET. (BLF188XR) It is in a 4 inch cube form-factor. The idea was that I built it to be "Carried On" an aircraft for 6 Meter DXpeditions. I drive the amp with a FlexRadio SDR-1500. If you have questions about it, please e-mail me. Thanks
Please submit conformation request ( QSL ) to the W9DR Home call Address
