Ex-pat Brit Steve Telenius-Lowe and his writer
wife, Eva, are living the
early retired life on the outrageously delightful island of Bonaire in the
Dutch West Indies.
"Would you like to operate from Bonaire? This station — consisting of a Yaesu FT-2000, Acom 1500 linear amplifier, Spiderbeam 14-element wire beam for 10-12-15-17-20m, quarter-wave verticals for 40m, 60m and 80m (click on photo above for more detail), plus a 21m (70ft) high quarter-wave inverted-L for 160m — is available for rent."
Yes please. So how come the sneaky Dutch get to
keep a jewel like this, and we end up with the IoW and the
penguin outposts with permafrost?
Steve is the author of various books on radio, including
HF SSB DX Basics, and the most basic rule seems to be its
better to call CQ and be found - than wait at the back of a
queue of cluster chasers, all running Death Star sized TXs
