The last operation from the island of Trinidad was in 2015 to the PQ0T mark:
The island of Trinidad lies in the Atlantic Ocean and belongs to Brazil. This mysterious island is part of the Trinidade and Martim Vaz archipelago, located approx 1200 km west of the coast of Brazil. With an area of just over 10 km² offers Trinidad impressive natural beauty and richness.
With its volcanic past and unique geology, the island is a fascinating place for scientists and adventurers alike.. Its coast consists of high cliffs and rock formations, which offer a refuge for many birds and marine animals. Beneath the surface of the ocean lies an amazing underwater world with coral reefs and diverse species of sea creatures.
In addition to its natural beauty, the island is historically known as the site of various maritime events and discoveries. It was discovered in 1502 and experienced a number of sea accidents. Its location was also crucial during the Second World War, when it served as an important point for strategic allied activities.
Today, Trinidad is a protected area, where access is restricted. Despite its limitations, its natural value is admirable and attracts students, scientists and adventurers, who wish to discover its secrets and protected fauna and flora. Trinidade Island remains a hidden treasure, which retains its wild and unspoiled beauty due to its remoteness and limited access.
Charles Wilmott (M0OXO) will be PR0T's QSL Manager. OQRS will be available shortly after leaving the island.
