Guadeloupe (FG/AB3Y)

Little bit of Caribbean DXing in French Antilles

QTH: 16°07'N, 61°35'W [FK96EC] (Basse-Terre)

QTU:
April 12th to 17th, 2017

QSS:
14 & 18 MHz ± QRM

XCVR & ANT:
Icom IC 7300 (cca. 50W) from battery into a long wire antenna

QSO:
II8MDC, CO8LY, YV5IUA, KN4CCB, WX4F, LU5FF, K2LS, WW4DD, KK4VBV, KQ4LA, DL20MDXC, OM6IB

Note:
I had difficulty erecting an effective antenna. There wasn't enough wind for my kite lifted vertical and everything else I tried wasn't radiating efficiently enough to make two-way QSOs.
