DigiMon - Paul W. Van Dyke
Paul also known as Digimon makes some comments:
So you wish to work me and the team on Barbados on XXX band using SSB, CW, RTTY, PSKxx, Satellite on AO-51, or some other mode.
I would suggest keep looking at the DX clusters and they will give you the best clue of where I am, and what mode I am running in at any time. I normally run PSK 31, and then check for RTTY activities. On Saturday -- I look and see if there is any SSTV around on 20 m. I normally am on 20 m ( standard PSK and RTTY frequencies) And somewhere on 17 m if one of the other crew is not tearing up the bands there.
This information also applies for the rest of the crew, we will be all over the bands!
When I am running from the villa, the radio will be a Elecraft KX3, I will be running 30 W when doing PSK 31, and 100 W when running RTTY /SSTV. Trying to make a special schedule while on the island is almost impossible due to the fact there are so many things going on.
Logging will be with a iPad or Android tablet using HamLog and the
Again, keep checking the DX cluster as it will tell you if I am doing digital or on the beach doing QRP. And of course, it will tell you what the rest of the members of the team are doing at any one time. I am guessing we will have four teams out in the daytime somewhere.
