Mike, VE2XB, will be active as J79XB from Dominica (NA-101) starting January 5th (2012) for several weeks. Activity will be holiday style on all bands 160-10 meters and possibly 6m if there are openings. He states that he will be concentrating a bit more on 80/40/30 meters and of course the other bands including 17/12 meters as conditions allow. QSL via VE2XB (see QRZ.com for address and details) with SASE and CDN stamps or 2 IRCs or 2 greenbacks. The postal rates have gone up, so take that into consideration before you send your QSL card.
