For the week of May 24-31, 2022, trip participants will fly into Dutch Sint Maarten. There, we will have a beautiful villa and equip it for ham radio operating, photos of the rented villa are displayed below. The French Saint Martin (north) side of the island is only a short drive away and could provide a second DXCC entity to light up. Depending on participant interest, rental of a French side villa or hotel accommodations on either side of the island could be arranged. CQ WPX CW is the weekend of May 27th and we will enter a multi-op entry if you would like to participate.

Additional add-on trips are being explored for a smaller group looking to extend their trip. There are ferries running daily to St. Bartholomew and Anguilla, with plans for part of our group to be on St. Bart’s all or part of May 31- June 6, 2022 and Anguilla June 6 – 13, 2022 (part of which will overlap with the ARRL VHF contest, focusing on 6m).

We look forward to exploring MARCO member interest and providing details about our 2022 trip – Join Us on Zoom!
