Beata DXpedition will be QRV from January 25 to February 1, 2017. We will be transmiting and listening on all bands, CW and SSB with the callsing HI1UD. We will publish our operation schedule in the months to come.
This will be a important event for Dominican Radio amateurs, since we hope not only to promote our beloved hobby, but also to promote Dominican Republic as a Eco-tourism destination. It is our interest to leave our mark on the island, providing local fishermen with medicine supplies and a small solar and wind power station.
HI1UD is a important contact for those HAMS chasing the IOTA award as we will be operating on NA-122, CQ Zone 8, ITU 11 and grid FK47GN. Again this callsing is very rare since HAM radio operation on the island is very infrequent.
All contacts will be confirmed via our QSL manager Chuck Webber (W2CCW) as well as LoTW and Clublog.
