of "The Medical Amateur Radio Council" (home club callsign WB5D). For
J68MD QSLs see info on their QRZ page. Jay states the following on his
QRZ.com page about his activity outside of the contest: "I will be doing
OSCAR satellite operation by schedule as we are visiting vacation style
in varying locations. My schedule needs to take into account my shifts
as a team member of the CQWW J68MD team. E-mail me to coordinate both FM
simple SATs and SSB linear transponder bird QSO schedules. Radios will be
a FT-817ND and FT-818ND for full duplex operation using an Arrow II antenna.
During Oct. 19-21st, my operations will be satellite only from the Gros
Islet area (FK94mb) and Pigeon Island (FK94mc). Signal Peak at Pigeon Island
is where in the 1700's the British signaled ships with fires and lanterns
and spied on the French in Martinique. My QTH from 10/21 to 10/28 will
be the Villa Grand Piton just north of Soufriere in Grid FK93lu. For
J6/AA4FL contacts QSL to my home call. I will submit contacts by LoTW,
the preferred mode of confirmation. Paper card submissions should be
accompanied by - a SASE for USA stations - a SAE and 2 USDs for stations
outside the USA."
