J65SLI35 QSL Card

The J6DX Group organized a DXpedition to St. Lucia this year. We were asked to donate to the project in order to purchase solar panels for the QRP 5w operation. Several clubs and individuals also donated to the project, including the following:

Budd W4FF, Buddipole (antennas), SCARS, WA4GIF Butch Weber and various individuals in those clubs.

They ran SSB, CW and Digital. Above is the QSL card that will be sent to amateurs who worked the DXpedition. Our very own John Carson, KD5SRW, is the QSL Manager for the event.

They will also be active Easter weekend.

About W5PAA

The Aeronautical Center Amateur Radio Club, Inc.'s mission is to offer its members a means of demonstrating and sharing their knowledge, skills, and experiences in amateur radio with others and provide emergency communications services to the community. This is accomplished through support of local and national amateur radio events and drills, conducting licensing workshops and training in emergency communications procedures. Some of these include the Rush Springs Annual Watermelon Festival, the OKC Memorial Marathon and Amateur Radio support during Preparedness Drills and Exercises conducted by local first-responder agencies.
