5KCW San Andres Island DXpedition



January 21-28, 2009

Latitude/Longitude: 12 58N, 81 68W


Two members of the Texas DX Society & HK3CW operated from San Andres Island, Colombia

from January 21-28, 2009. 

This included participation in the CQWW 160m CW Contest, January 24-25, 2009.

We were active mostly on CW, but included RTTY and PSK as well.  We only made one SSB

contact, so you know where our priorities were.
