2021- Setup :

Work in progress...

Old 2012-2020 Setup :

Almost perfect 360° horizon (-1° to 2° max horizon) + Caribbean sea at just 500m on south, 5km on East.




Here's what I managed to fit in only 5000 ft sq (500m2) to be active from 6m to 160m:

- 20 feet (7m) tower for VHF/UHF antennas :
    In progress :
  • 70 cm : 2 * DK7ZB 18 el Yagi
  • 23 cm : 2 * 36 el Antennas-Amplifiers Yagi
  • G5500 rotor, Preamplifiers for all 3 bands
- 40 feet (12m) C.T.A Tower and prosistel rotor with : - Inverted L (10m+10m) 160m/80m antenna,



AMSAT Portable Setup :

Most distance records have been beaten with this 5W configuration:
2X FT-817 (FT-1634) SSB/FM full-duplex
Several Arrow Antennas (Arrow II Portable/Alaskian Arrow)
Using 5000mAh LiPo batteries / MP3 recorder / Heil Sound BM-10 Headset
Due to the lack of interest of the OMs for the chase of grids on the satellites FM, I do not have any more specific setup in FM.

FS/FG8OJ / PJ7/FG8OJ Sat expedition in April 18.

Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe is archipelago about 5 differents populated islands : Les Saintes, Basse-Terre, Marie-Galante, Désirade and where I am located Grande-Terre. This islands are located in the central part of the French West Indies at 16° at North at only 3000 km / 1800 miles from US East Coast. The climate is very hot with average temperature around 30°C / 85°F all the year and very sunny but with a hurricane season (August to october) that can be very rainy. The total area is 1600km2 / 629 sq mi and population is 400 000 but we are only around 20 actives amateurs radios ! The official language is French, although many of its inhabitants also speak Antillean Creole.
Guadeloupe is the ideal destination for family tourism, sports (sailing) and natural all the year but the best season is in winter. It is also a perfect place to make a hollyDXpedition since FG is very popular :-) If you have this project, let me you inform about vacations where you will be welcomed with your radio equipment !
