I am planning a trip to Jamaica from July 19, 2014 to July 25, 2014. I’ll be operating vacation style from the coast and hope to make a few contacts while I am there. Below are the freqs that I intend on hanging around.
40m 7.255 – 7.265
20m 14.255 – 14. 275
15m 21.285 – 21.295
10m 28.425 – 28.435
I’ll use whatever is open but I have found myself staying on 20 meters from around 2300 to 0200 hrs UTC.
I’ll be using my Yaseu 857-D with an OCF dipole. I’ll also be on battery power for the week. As an experiment, I intend on taking a small laptop and equipment that will allow me to operate PSK. We’ll see how well that works.
If you need any particular bands or modes for your logbook, let me know and I’ll do what I can to accommodate. Just not cw… sorry.
