Well, It's time to write something about the preparation. 
Since I decided to go to Bonaire a lot of thing happened, I waited for 3 months for my Buddipole and Elecraft KX3 package that was sent to a friend in USA and he just came over long time later. Anyway, with both in hands is time to be cool with the gears, but not! After read so many articles about Buddipole as well as youtube videos, I decide to go for a Yagi 2 el. for 10m to do a good score during CQWW CW. I found the 6m kit in an UK store and ordered, my drama started when after 10 days, the web store told me that wasn't in stock! And I had only 13 days to request it in USA and be delivered here. I took the risk and so far looks like this is not an option anymore. I just have Monday to wait for it and I'm almost sure that will not arrive on time. 
So I'm taking my Buddipole and Budstick with me to cover at least 2 bands without to change the configuration during some hours.
So, I will try to keep some updates here, by now I left my setup for this activation below.


So my setup so far for PJ4S operation is:
Antennas: Buddipole de lux package with some extras accessories as Low Band Coil for 80m Operation, 2x 6/22" Shockcord to get less coil for low bands. 4x 9' Long Whips to have a full size dipoles to high bands.
Buddstick as a workaround but will be fully functional.. :)
Antenna analyser: Rigexpert AA54
Radio1: Yaesu FT-950 100w (Thanks to PJ4NX, Peter)
Interface: USB III with cable for FT-950.
Radio2: Elecraft KX3 (12w max).
PS: Alinco DM330
PC: Thinkpad Elite E135, 11" running Win 8.1 and Win-test.
Luck: I will need a lot!! :)
