I wrapped up my Samana HI9 operation yesterday morning. I found a very friendly Spanish-language round table - they were all willing to try to pull my QRP DSB sigs out of the noise. Within a few minutes I worked KI4PZE, CO8OT,WA4RME,and CO8KB. So that made a total of 18 solid contacts with 3 more that might not qualify as full-fledged QSOs.
We have moved on to very urban Santo Domingo - no room for antennas here!
