DXpedition to the Nature Island

   On Air from Dominica 






          Actually the DXpedition to Dominica is over now. It was a phantastic trip to the British West Indies!

           I travelled via Tobago (9Y) and Barbados (8P) for getting to the Commonwealth of Dominica.

           On a operating time of nearly 12 days I was able to reach 6.650 QSO's without dupes.

           I could work continuous from 80m-10m. Like every time I was active in CW,SSB and RTTY.

            The QTH was located on the north-east side of the island at Pointe Baptiste which is a part of the village Calibishie.

           This part of the island enables you a fine take-off to Europe and NA/SA.

           On my time there I experienced a lot of friendly and helpfull people who gave me a lot of support to make

           this DXpedition possible! Thanks to all of you!

           Especially to my hosts of the Pointe Baptiste Guesthouse: Alan & Marina Napier

           And of course to the Family Augustus for their phantastic meals and welcome to me on all days and nights!



          final destination - airport Melville Hall                            operating as J79AN
