QRV Hog Cay

imageI was QRV 17m at Hog Cay in the Ragged Islands yesterday (18 Jan) and hope to be again today. Sadly, my first QSO was also my last since my wife fainted but happily she has since recovered. It’s nice and quiet down here – we call it the Hog Cay Yacht Club – the Bahamas tourist authority built the permanent structure for local events and the boaters built the older structure from the flotsam and jetsam that washes up on the other side of the island. Sadly, the takeoff for Europe is not ideal but for the USA, Oceania, Japan and the antipodes it’s great – that also means I don’t have to get up too early 😀 NA-001 isn’t greatly in demand on SSB so I will concentrate on datamodes here with the occasional voice contact.
