Here’s a great opportunity if you’re feeling adventurous.
PJ2T is looking for your help for the WPX SSB contest. Our team presently consists of AD7XG, AC7DC, and WA7CPA. We have space for six more operators to do a Multi/Multi operation from PJ2T. Last year we placed World #2 in this contest, and this year the sunspots are even better.
You would need to arrive in Curacao on March 21 and depart March 28. We have rented a luxury home with an oceanfront swimming pool that’s only a five minute walk from PJ2T. If you bring your XYL or OM, you’d have a private bedroom and bath. Approximate cost for the trip would be around $950 if we get a full team. That is all in, covering the sleeping space, all meals and beverages, and shared station expenses. (Hotel rooms on the island run around $280/night this time of year, so your PJ2T experience is a very good deal.) We collect only, to the penny, what we spend for groceries, the rental house, et al. If you choose to rent a car or eat out a lot, that’s an additional cost to you.
We have five stations set up, running K3s and AL-1200 amps, and the QTH has very fast and reliable fiber direct to the station.
Drop a note to Geoff, W0CG, firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you can help. We need to move quickly, because airfares rise rapidly close to the travel dates.
