The Ham Radio Union of the Dominican Republic (UDRA), is happy to announce our next DXpedition
Beata Island DXpedition 2017 will be active in all band all modes from January 25th to Febuary1st of 2017.
After 28 year of inactivity by HI1UD we shall have A class operators doing what we like most DX.
This will be an important endeavor by Dominican Hams dedicated not only to promote the hobby but also to promote the Dominican Republic as a destination. It is our interest to leave our footprint on the island not only making DX Contacts but also giving hope to the local residents by providing them with medicine and a Solar and air power supply for the small village of fishermen’s that currently reside on the island.
This is an important contact for those hams that are chasing the Island on the Air (IOTA) as we will be operating on NA-122, CQ ZONE 8, ITU 11 FK47FN and will be confirming all contacts via our QSL Manager Chuck W2CCW as well as the LOTW and Club log.
More info can be obtain at our websites:
This is the first version of this page, there will be many changes not only to this page as well as the official pages of the DXpedition, please check regularly for the most up to date information.
