PJ7 - Sint Maarten -  Update on my Sint Maarten operation - I made 9,254 QSO's as PJ7/K5WE. I had 190 QSO's on SSB, 313 on RTTY, all the rest on CW. Equipment included a K3 radio, a KPA500 amp, a Hexbeam for 20-6 meters, a 2 el VDA for 30 meters, and an inverted V for 40 meters. We stayed at a villa on a hillside overlooking Oyster Pond on the Eastern coast of the island. The location had spectacular views and was very pretty, but turned out to be not so ideal from a radio perspective. The villa faced SE with a mountain directly behind us in the direction of the US and JA. The path to Europe was clear, straight out over the water. My percentage of QSO's from the Caribbean is always highest to Europe, but this time it was the highest yet, at nearly 72%, due mostly I think to the location. The house was perched on the side of a mountain, with hardly any yard and very little space for antennas. I had to put the 30 meter verticals within a few feet of the house and there was no room for the 80 meter antenna, so it did not go up at all. We had no internet access the entire time we were there, so no email and no log uploads. They got the TV working after 5 days. They blamed the outages on a hurricane that hit the island a couple weeks before our arrival. I operated for 9 days, beginning 25Oct14. A significant part of the first 2 days was spent putting up antennas, and half the last day was spent tearing down. Also, my wife went with me on this trip so we spent 2-3 hours each day doing tourist stuff and took off one whole day to take the ferry over to the island of St Barths for sight-seeing and shopping. So all-in-all, I am happy with the 9,254 QSO's. Tnx to all of you who worked me as PJ7/K5WE. QSL cards are on order. Hpe CU Agn from the next one... 73... Jeff

PJ7 - Sint Maarten - Logs Uploaded to LoTW and Clublog. QSL via home call direct or buro. 

QSLs my be requested via ClubLog:


26Mar14 - I have uploaded logs from the KP2/K5WE, FJ/K5WE, PJ5W, and PJ5/K5WE operations to ClubLog. You may search those logs for your QSO's. You may also do a QSL Request from the ClubLog pages if desired.


Update on our Sint Eustatius operation - We made a total of 18,904 QSO's with the three callsigns, PJ5/K5WE, PJ5/N5WR, and PJ5W. Jeff made 623 QSO's on RTTY, all the rest were on CW. We made a M/S HP entry in the 2014 ARRL Int'l DX CW Contest as PJ5W, with a score of 5,033,925 and 5,194 QSO's. Our equipment included two K3 radios, a KPA500 amp, and an ALS-600 amp. Antennas were a Hexbeam for 20-10 meters, a homebrew vertical for 160-30 meters, and dipoles for 80, 40, and 30 meters.
Sint Eustatius, or "Statia" as the locals call it, is quite small, about 8 square miles in size. It is a Dutch possession and is about a 20 minute flight from St. Maarten. It has a dormant volcano, "The Quill", on the south end of the island, and mountains on the northern side. Most of the 3,500 inhabitants live in the middle area and in the town of Oranjestad. Statia is a quiet island, very un-developed, with no luxury resorts. WX was great, temp in the low 80's, constant breezes, with short 10-15 minute rain showers which blew through 3 or 4 times a day. It was a relaxing place.
Thanks for the QSO's. QSL's have been ordered and we will get to work on them as soon as they arrive. Erik and I are asking ourselves, "Where do we go next?" Hpe to CU then. 73. Jeff - K5WE

Update on our trip to Saint Barthelemy - We made a total of 12,766 QSO's in a little less than 6 days operating time. 402 QSO's were made on SSB, 363 QSO's were made on RTTY, all the rest were on CW. 19 QSO's were made on 6 meters with a barefoot radio and a 3 element yagi on a ladder up about 10 feet. We had a Hexbeam for 10-20 meters which performed great, a SVDA vertical for 17 meters, and various wire verticals and dipoles for the other bands. Two radios were used, each with 500 watt amps. We stayed at a villa on a hilltop in the Colombier area of St. Barths. Saint Barthelemy is a very picturesque French island, with narrow winding mountain roads and beautiful scenery. We enjoyed our time there very much. Thanks to everyone for all the QSO's. Also thanks to my son Erik, N5WR, for sharing this adventure with me... We will be ordering QSL cards from UX5UO. It will be a few weeks before we have cards and can begin the QSLing... Hpe to CU from the next one... 73... Jeff - K5WE
