Information from W9DR:

The last two weeks of June 19 to July 1, 2014, I will be operating from Grenada with the call J38DR for a 6 Meter only Dxpedition. I will be on the north shore of the island (IOTA # NA024) (Grid Square FK92EF) for a great launch angle to North America and Europe over the Atlantic Ocean. Also, South America will be workable too. Operating frequency will be 50.115 Mhz. SSB, 50.115,6 Mhz. CW and a breakable Beacon (50.115,6 Mhz.) running during no stations heard. Again I will be using a FlexRadio SDR-1500 driving my HB solid state water-cooled amplifier into a 5 element 6 meter Yagi. Please submit your conformation request (QSL) to W9DR home address. I hope to work many 6 Meter operators.
