October 10, 2010 is a special day for Sint Maarten, as they gain their independence from Dutch rule.
To celebrate this historic event, a group of experienced DXers have teamed together to put this new country on the air.
After initial conversations between Joe Blackwell, AA4NN (nickname: Joe4) and Joe Pater, W8GEX (nickname: Joe8), a plan was formed. When Joe 4 learned he had some health problems, Craig Thompson, K9CT, assumed the roll of co-leader.
We will operate six stations 24 hours a day for 10 days, starting on 10-10-10. Our Band Plan includes 6M to 160M on CW, SSB, and RTTY.
We invite you to explore this website, which will be updated frequently before and during the operation. And don't forget to sign our Guestbook!
The team is grateful for the opportunity to activate a new country and, hopefully, work thousands of other DXers worldwide. This will be an exciting 10 days for all operators and the DX community. We look forward to having fun and making life-long friends.
CU in the pileups!
