YW5AS DXpedition pictures now online

yw5asPictures are up of the YW5AS Aves de Sotavento DXpedition — and they are pretty cool. There’s a bit of narrative that goes along with the web site as well.

It was a pleasure to see the use of all of the verticals right there on the salt water beach as well. As you know, the combination of vertical antennas and being located on the beach makes the vertical a powerful antenna.

And, as a side note, I am continually amazed at the quality of Google Earth — and how so many DXpeditions now are using it as part of their planning.

Hat tip to DL6KAC for the link.

But the real rare stuff is still with very bad resolution available in Google Earth.

But they are working continuously on an improvement.

But Google Earth really rocks 🙂

I really like the concept. It allows me to really see where the water is, where the station would be and what the takeoff angles would be for different continents.

Pictures are different then maps and a picture, in this case, is better then the map.
