I managed to make contact with the “rarest of the rare” remote locations for amateur radio operators this morning, K1N, on Navassa Island. It’s a tiny place between Hati, Cuba, and Jamacia. It is administered by the US, but remains disputed between the US and Hati.
From the news and the K1N website, I knew they would be on the
radio today. I was hoping they would be on
20m upper sideband
(USB) and I was in luck! At
2015-02-07 15:35 UTC I
made a brief
5x9 QSO with the 2015 Navassa DXpedition among
the huge pileup of others across the world.
Now I can sit back and wait for the QSL card and the ARRL LoTW entry. Good luck to the other folks out there trying to get a QSO with them.
