From May 19th to May 30th, and then again possibly 2 weeks later, Drew, KO4MA, will be in Anguilla for work. He will at the least have an arrow and HT to make QSOs on UO-14, and SO-50 or AO-27 if they are on or still on by the time they get to 18 degrees latitude. A reciprocal license application has been submitted, but since it must be picked up in person, and this is a work trip, the exact date that operations can start as well as the callsign
is unknown at this time.
Drew says, I would like to do AO-40 too, but my luggage allowance is VERY restricted due to work stuff. With the close range and attitude, I may be able to use the UHF half of the arrow and a helix/preamp combo, or line an umbrella with foil when I get there and try that. If it looks like I can fit the gear, and it will work, I ll take the radios to do AO-40 (Yaesu FT-790/817 combo). If I do make AO-40, it will be only in the earliest AM hours before work. I will endeavor to assemble this setup this week and test it before I go.
There is also a chance of an evening pass or 2 from nearby Saint Martin/Maarten (PJ7/FS).
QSL direct only, with an SASE, or SAE and green stamp/euro, to my QRZ.com address.
[ANS thanks Drew, KO4MA, for the above information]
