VP5TT in 2000 ARRL CW Contest - 15m Single Band High Power

World Record - 15m Single Band! (Sept. 2000 QST Results)

QSL VP5TT and K2KW/VP5 via WA4WTG

 

 

 

 

  

A 3 element parasitic vertical array beaming the USA was installed specifically for this contest. The vertical elements are half-wave vertical dipoles. The antenna is about 50-70' from the water line, which is further from the water than desired (antennas had to be on the property). The QTH is the house owned by K4ISV on North Caicos Island.

 

 

  

 

 

Kenny K2KW hanging out on the beautiful beach of North Caicos. The beach, water, shelling, and snorkeling were excellent!

The existing tribander at the station was also used during the contest, as well as the equipment at the station. To learn more about the K4ISV rental QTH, click here.
