John, V47JA/W5JON, has been operating on SO-50
from St. Kitts with some success.  The problem for
him is that there is terrain in the way from about
320 degrees, north to east.  So he is limited to what
he can work from his house there.

John is putting together what he will need to operate
portable from the top of the hill where he will be able
to see down to the horizon to the north.  Once he has
everything together he will be able to work down low
and work more stations in the US.  He is using an Arrow
antenna and two FM mobile units.  He is not a newcomeer
to the birds but hasn't operated since the HEO's went away
years ago.

He will be on St. Kitts for a few weeks and he hopes to work
everyone that needs it.  SO-50 only.  He will QSL via
LOTW but might wait until he returns to Texas to get everyone
