Sint Maarten PJ7PT DXpedition-March 2012

Sint Maarten PJ7PT DXpedition-March 2012

       Welcome to the PJ7PT Sint Marteen 2012 DXpedition web site, where we'll give you more information about our trip to St. Maarten - one of the most beautiful and well-known Caribbean Islands.Wikipedia Sint Maarten
      We're planning to stay there for 14 days between the 5th and 18th of March 2012. Our goal is to make as many QSO's as possible, have some fun and enjoy a bit of a break on this magnificent Caribbean Island!  

With a good propagation forecast for March 2012, efforts will be made to give this entity to DXers on as many bands and modes as possible.

ll of our team will be kept fully occupied and we will run at least two stations during our fourteen days on the island. 
We plan to be active around-the-clock using CW / SSB and RTTY modes (from 160 to 6m). 

    We hope to be granted a 60M Band license too, but this is still to be confirmed. Our location will be Oyster Pond on the east side of the Island with a clear path to Europe, also good directions to Asia and USA. 
    ITU ZONE : 11  CQ ZONE : 8    IOTA : NA-105  TIME ZONE : -4hrs UTC

       We will be happy if you are successful in making a contact with us while we are there.
   Hope to hear you in the pile-ups.
