Basically this is the same setup as we used last year in Guatemala, see video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnxVaHpQ8_g&t=32s
(Results 144: 261 QSO’s / 432: 42 QSO’s / 1296; 49 QSO’s)
Only difference is a new and tested 70cm. X-pol. antenna.
Fortunately we found an apartment in the quiet north part of this very exclusive ‘touristic’ Caribbean area.
In case of a power failure there is a big generator waiting for us J Let’s hope for not too much QRM in this place.
The total weight of our luggage is over 180 kg. which means a lot of overweight.
This trip is again a big challenge and we hope for some support.
