2017 P49X Wine Challenge

November 2003

I visited Aruba for the first time in late November 2003, just prior to the CQWW CW contest, staying at the P49Y/P40L cottage and contest station.  As this was a birthday celebration trip for Mary, my partner, there was no contesting and very little operation at all.  I did get on for some CW operation and occasional SSB schedules with owners AE6Y (P49Y) and W6LD (P40L) back in California.  I obtained a visitor's license good for one year and also the special call sign P40X for the November 2003 trip, good for 30 days.  However, the tantalizing presence of such a fine station during that visit was enough to cement my commitment to come back for a major contest operation.  This trip led to a number of subsequent contest operations.
