On June 14, 2014, Single Operator Portable, Dan AK4PX, will be headed to Dry Tortugas to activate grid EL84 during the ARRL June VHF Contest timeframe and, of course, for some fun in the sun and in the clear blue waters of Garden Key.

Weather permitting, AK4PX will be operating during the contest with the following equipment:

ICOM IC-703Plus, 6m two-element Yagi, Buddipole 18ft mast and tripod

EARCH end fed halfwave

His GoBox has an internal 9ah cell and he will also have a separate power box with an 18ah cells, all supported by a 27w solar panel.

Bands: 50MHZ (Yagi), 40-10m (EFHW)
Modes: SSB
QSL will be by LoTW.

A specific Dry Tortugas paper QSL card will be available as well for those who send him a SASE. Your paper QSL is desired but not required.

Tnx to Dan AK4PX.
