2014 Grenada 6 Meter Dxpedition
The last two weeks of June 19 to July 1, 2014, I will be operating from Grenada with the call J38DR for a 6 Meter only Dxpedition. I will be on the north shore of the island (IOTA # NA024) (Grid Square FK92EF) for a great launch angle to North America and Europe over the Atlantic Ocean. Also, South America will be workable too. Operating frequency will be 50.115 Mhz. SSB, 50.115,6 Mhz. CW and a breakable Beacon (50.115,6 Mhz.) running during no stations heard. Again I will be using a FlexRadio SDR-1500 driving my HB solid state water-cooled amplifier into a 5 element 6 meter Yagi. Please submit your conformation request (QSL) to W9DR home address. I hope to work many 6 Meter operators.
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
