JAMAICA DXpedition March 2 thru March 7
2014-02-25 09:40
I will be transmitting from Negril Beach, Island of Jamaica, as 6Y / W1SWL (SIX YANKEE STROKE WISKEY ONE SIERRA WISKEY LIMA).
Hopefully the computers and network connections at the resort are sufficient to allow me to work Hamsphere DX.

I PREFER to build a call list so sending private messages via the /private 6Y/W1SWL command would be best.

I will be building a nice QSL card of an ocean sunset for confirmation and may change each day.

Please keep your QSO VERY SHORT.... I will CALL YOU from my list so your QSO should be something like the following ...

6Y/W1SWL THIS IS TWO HOTEL SUGAR ONE TWO THREE FOUR READING YOU 7 BY 5 IN ANYTOWN, ANYCOUNTRY PLEASE QSL 73's OVER....

No weather reports... best wishes to the family etc and I will already know your name as I will bring it up on my log prior to calling you.

I do not know what band or frequency I will be using but I will probably change that each day however I will probably start off on the high end of 6Meters.

Hours of transmission will be limited to one or two each day as my XYL's demands are met.... most likely early and late ... ;-)

Cheers - Ya Mon

Hi All:
In Jamaica now. Having a few problems with their computers....

1) the computers are locked up in a cabinet under the desk and have no microphone or speakers. I have to get someone to open the lock
to attach my USB mic and headset.

2) all but one computer is locked down for security reasones so i can only install JAVA and Hamsphere on one of them.

Fingers Crossed I can get this resolved today (Sunday)

Saturday Morning will be the last broadcast on the JAMAICA DXpedition.
I plan on being at the right side of the 6M band at 600 Jamaican Time.

So far over 200 confirmed QSO's.
