The Buddies DXpedition to the Caribbean

From Steve WGØAT on Facebook:

It’s that time of year again! Members of the Buddies in the Caribbean 2013 (Team #1) will mount a mini-DXpedition to Barbados (8P6) 29 Jan 2013 thru 6 Feb 2013.

The Buddipole teamwhich specializes in 100 watt or less low power radios and the Buddipole portable antenna systems will have fixed operations from a ocean villa and portable operations from various points on the island using CW, SSB, and digital modes on 160-10m.

The team consists of the following operators: Chris (W6HFP), Budd (W3FF), Danny (WZ1P), Steve (wG0AT), Mike (KC4VG), Guy (N7UN), Paul (KB9AVO),and Wey-Bob (K8EAB). We all have received our 8P9 callsigns.

QSL via LoTW, eQSL, or mail to operator’s home call (SASE required). See QRZ for individual’s specific QSL instructions.

Sure would like to be able to join ’em!

    Twice a year sounds like a bunch of guys with a lot of excess cash. Let’s see, how can we spread that wealth from the “haves” to the “have nots”??? OH I know call Washington DC and ask them how.

    Have fun while you are able guys.
