Feb 2011 News Release:

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 Dominica (J7) on February 1-9th, 2011.  Yes, a very welcome change in weather from the cold and snow of north NJ!  Part of the "fun" is the hiking into scenic locations and operating QRP portable!  My Dominica callsign is J79UN. 

We plan to stay at the Calibashie Cove hotel ( http://www.calibishiecove.com/ ) on the north shore of Dominica.  After two very successful mini-DXpeditions to St Lucia in 2010, we look forward to demonstrating our capabilities for "ultralite" DXpeditioning into magnificent vista locations, operating a field portable, battery-only radio with backpackable, lightweight antennas and most of all having fun.  The entire mini-DXpedition is limited to equipment that can fit in your airline suitcase.  QSL to N7UN or LoTW.  SASE required.  NO IRC's or eQSL.
