8P9LP DX-Pedition

In January 2005, I met Ron Wilkinson (8P6JB) on first 75 Meters (3.795 MHz.), then later on 20 Meters (14.205 MHz). I discussed with him that I would be passing through Barbados on my way to and from St. Lucia on February 15 and 22, 2005. I asked Ron if was possible to get a license and operate while I waited for my next flight. He made the arrangements for both Clint (W3ARS) and I (David - K3LP) to operate from the 8P6AW - Amateur Radio Society of Barbados.   When we arrived, Ron had our operating licenses in hand and transported us to and from the 8P6AW station which is about a 30-45 minute drive from the airport depending on traffic.

During our visit on February 15, 2005, we arrived on the island around 3:00 PM and department to St. Lucia at 6:30 PM. We had a chance to see the club station and operate for about 1.5 hours.

During our visit on February 22, 2005, we arrive at 7:00 AM and departed at 4:00 PM. Many members of the Amateur Radio Club of Barbados gathered at the club station at lunch time to visit and K3LP (David) gave a presentation regarding his T33C DX-Pedition. David presented and donated a new ARRL 2005 Handbook and World Map to the 8P6AW club station.

Here are some photos taken on the trip:
