The “Buddies in the Caribbean” DXpedition (Team #1) which specializes in 100 watt or less low power radios and the Buddipole portable antenna systems are going to Barbados(8P6) on January 29 - February 6, 2013.
We plan to stay at the Villa Wind Song on the south west side of Barbados. After two very successful mini-DXpeditions to St Lucia in 2010, we look forward to demonstrating our capabilities for “ultralite” DXpeditioning into magnificent locations, operating a field portable, battery-only radio with backpackable, lightweight antennas and most of all having fun on the island of Barbados. The entire mini-DXpedition is limited to equipment that can fit in our airline suitcase.
The eight operators are:
Budd/W3FFChris/W6HFP Dan/WZ1P Guy/N7UN Mike/KC4VG Steve/wG0AT
8P6 license applications are currently being processed.
There will be 2 maybe 3 Villa stations in operation at various times on 160-10 meters using CW, SSB, and PSK, RTTY/Digital.
During the day, up to (4) several teams will be battery-only, field portable from Barbados beaches, or mountains.
80m CW operations might happen, conditions permitting.
QSL via LoTW, eQSL, or mail to the operator’s home callsign
(SASE strictly required).
A webpage is under development for this operation. Check back here for the link!
