If you would like to email me for any info about antennas, Qsl info , Skeds on the bands, or if you are visiting the island ...feel free to email....also our IRLP node in Trinidad is 7500....Echolink Node 305834.

The antenna links here are to sites that has helped me in building antennas and/or gave me more ideas for my own projects....I hope these sites will really help someone in building their own antenna..
