REMINDER: The “Buddies in the Caribbean” suitcase mini-DXpedition group which specializes in 100 watt or less low power radios and Buddipole portable antenna systems is off to Barbados (8P6/NA-021) on Jan 29 to Feb 06, 2013.

The eight operators are: 8P9FF (W3FF), 8P9HF (W6HFP), 8P9WZ (WZ1P), 8P9RT (WG0AT), 8P9VG (KC4VG), 8P9DG (KB9AVO), 8P9EA (K8EAB) and 8P9UN (N7UN).

There will be 3 villa stations in operation on 160-10m using CW, SSB, and RTTY or PSK. At the same time, several teams will be battery-only, field portable either from Barbados beaches or scenic mountain tops and will sign call/p.

Our goal is to demonstrate “ultralite” DXpeditioning into magnificent “vista” locations, operating a field portable battery-only radios with backpackable, lightweight antennas and most of all “having fun” with a number of local operators from a 5-star Villa near the ocean.

QSL via LoTW or mail to the operator’s home callsign (SASE required).
