The worse case port to port isolation of my homebrew coaxial crossover switch in an Altoids tin is 57 dB at 80 meters and 39 dB at 10 meters, slightly surpassing the published measurements for the MFJ-1703 antenna crossover switch reviewed in the January 2011 QST. This level of isolation should suffice to alternately switch two typical QRP level radios between two antennas, especially at 14 MHz and below. http://p1k.arrl.org/pubs_archive/138096

Phil Sittner KD6RM drilled this piece of 1/4 inch aluminum for a horizontal balcony rail mount for the Chameleon CHA F-Loop magnetic loop antenna used at my KP4MD/P Suitcase DXpedition in Puerto Rico. http://www.qrz.com/db/kp4md/p

Caribbean Update... On Saturday, our friends Antonio Santiago KP4IA and his lovely wife Nilda WP4MMP treated Roger and myself to an exquisite brunch at Panadería La Jerezana, then to a picturesque tour around San Juan, including the Panadería Kasalta in Ocean Park, a favorite meeting place for visiting presidents and other dignitaries. More than a bakery, the "Panadería" in Puerto Rico is a cozy establishment where friends can meet and enjoy a light meal or sandwich with freshly baked bread over a glass of wine or a cup of fine Puerto Rican coffee. Among the sights we visited was a famous oriental style house that the legendary Puerto Rican bandleader Tito Rodríguez had built for his Japanese wife Tobi Kei.

Update from Carol KP4MD. Today, Roger KI6FYF and I met for lunch with #ARRL   Puerto Rico Section Manager Rene Fonseca NP3O, his wife Bruni and children Joshua and Sonaliz at the Aromas Café in Luquillo. Besides discussing ARRL and other matters concerning our respective sections, we enjoyed gourmet fare and fine Puerto Rican crafted coffee. #HamRadio

Here is a new QSL card for our current Caribbean Holiday Suitcase DXpedition. Propagation was poor today but I did manage one CW and a few JT65 contacts and enjoyed the rest of the day doing vacation things with Roger. Our log is posted on the KP4MD/P QRZ page http://www.qrz.com/db/kp4md/p . Tomorrow we meet with our good friends Tony KP4IA and his XYL Nilda WP4MMP for breakfast. The KX3 will be on 30m WSPR tonight (a screenshot of the last 90 minutes of WSPR spots is attached).
