 The Binational Dxpedition (Peru-Argentina) to Isla San Lorenzo in Peru concluded with remarkable reply from colleagues around the world. The expedition was identified as IOTA with SA-052, WLOTA LH 0131, and the ARLHS as PER-006 with reference as "Faro Gran Almirante Grau", which is located 300 meters above sea level in the southeastern section of the island.
It is important to highlight the crucial support given by the Peruvian NAVY, the same entity that facilitated the transfer and accommodation as regards the island. The Dxpedition Team were composed of three members belonging to the “Radio Club Peruano” (Pablo OA4AI, Cesar OA4CLU, Tony OA4DX)and other five members belonging to the Argentinean “Radio Club Grupo DX Bahía Blanca” (Carlos LU4ETN, Daniel LU1HLH, Gustavo LU7HW, Eduardo LU7HEO and Carlos LU7DSY) .
The expedition organization began last August 2013, when at that time Mr. Carlos Almirón had a meeting with Mr. Pablo Vazquez and Mr. Cesar Brousek (board members of the RCP) in Lima. After that, the RCP members started to request the OC0I special code that would identify the activation.
As soon as all the documents required were ready, the RCP members began to coordinate the logistics of the expedition.
Early in the morning on February 20th, all the participants were at the Port of Callao inready to start the dxpedition surrounded by loading equipment, antennas , batteries , generators and food.
On board a FAS boat all the Team Members sailed to the island under the command of Mr. Jaime Herrera Ulloa, Commander of the San Lorenzo Naval Station. Once we arrived to our destination, the island personnel were awaiting us at the dock of war, where we were escorted to the wardroom, located on the second level of the resort. We were assigned two rooms - the first one where we set the three radio stations and the second one provided with eight beds, where we were assigned to rest
With the time running out and after a quick field study, we began the assembly and installation of antennas - one Cushcraft R5 for 10, 12, 15, 17 and 20 meters, another of the same brand R6000, also for the same bands andhalf wave dipole for 40 meters north-south irradiation with one end tied to a tall palm tree and the remaining energy on a pole.
The stations were formed from two Icon 706 MK2G, TS 450 and TS 50, in case the team was dedicated to digital modes interface Signalink.As Naval Station provides 12-hour rotating electrical energy per day, it was necessary to use two extra batteries 12 volts and 170 amperes weighing 86 kg each, to cover the remaining 12 hours and to keep operating full time.
The first mode that was in the air on the CW was the 10 meter band - the most regular, where Tony quickly found a pile up that lasted a little more than four hours, adding the first 500 QSOs to log OC0I .
The second station was active PSK31 on 20 meters, and also later on, we began in SSB on 40 meters as soon as the “Cadena Peruana Relief frequency of 7100” finished.
Although there were not climatic setbacks, there was an unstable propagation except for 10 meters. It is worth to mention that, there wasalwaysat least one open side. Finally, the log press was adding up to 7000 QSOs just before the end.For many, it was an unexpected interest, but we were not surprised when we realized the interest as soon as we were in the air.Without any sponsorship, we achieved 112 countries from all continents, fully justifying the human and economic efforts.
The 2014 expedition to "Isla San Lorenzo" - Peru´s largest Island in the Pacific Ocean, has ended.We still have the enormous satisfaction of having done our utmost commitment and to let hunters for hundreds of islands and lighthouses around the world enjoy a new one.
Thank you very much Pablo, César and Tony for your friendship and team spirit. Radio Club Peruano thanks very much for your confidence in us.On behalf of the Argentinean BBDX Group, we would like to express our greatest gratitude.
Depending on God´s Will, we hope to keep dreaming and working together towards the South American amateur radio outreach.
