J79KV: This is a quick summary of my expedition to the Commonwealth of Dominica. I am using a 7 el M2 ant. on a 40 ft boom and running about 700 watts. The location is on a cliff over looking the ocean, about 150 ft above sea level. During the past 3 1/2 days, have worked about 344 different stations of which 257 are European. Have worked 5 continents and a very large number of stations over 5000 miles away. Today band was open to Europe at 6:30 am local (10:30 gmt) and video was still here 14 hours later. Please look for me on 103.3. Will be here thru Sunday. QSL via my home QTH w6jkv.....thanks for QSOs and or for trying. Jimmy, W6JKV
