SPECIAL THANKS

I want to extend a special thanks to Mort Bardfield, W1UQ (PJ7UQ and FS5UQ) for his hospitality and allowing our team the opportunity to operate from his Dutch villa in downtown Philipsburg (PJ7UQ) and French (FS5UQ) hill top property on Pic Paradis.

I want to also thank Joe Arcure, Jr. (W3HNK), for his FS5UQ QSL Manager support.  He has performed the FS5UQ QSL Manager duties for numerous years. Joe is by far one of the best QSL Managers and has done an excellent job get QSL cards out even when we have delayed his normal process.

FS5UQ STATION LOCATION

The FS5UQ station on Pic Paradis is about 8 miles north-east from the capital city of Marigot on the French side of the island looking down at Orient Bay on the east coast. Pic Paradis, at 1,400 feet elevation, is the highest point on the whole island. This is the smallest island in the world ever to have been partitioned between two different nations, St. Martin/St. Maarten has been shared by the French and the Dutch in a spirit of neighborly cooperation and mutual friendship for almost 350 years. St. Martin/St. Maarten is sunny and warm year-round, averaging 82 degrees Fahrenheit in summer and just 2 degrees cooler in winter. The island is buffeted by cooling trade winds that keep things temperate all year long. Average annual rainfall comes to about 45 inches, most of which occurs around late summer and early fall.
