Charter Flight and Accommodation arranged

Well things are moving along according to plan. I’ve booked and paid the deposit for accommodation on the island. I now have a reliable source of 240V power along with comfortable and safe shelter near the water’s edge. This will give me a great saltwater take off for the vertical antenna.

I’ve been in negotiations with a flight company and I’ve booked and paid the deposit for a charter flight in a little aircraft to take all of the equipment and people over to the island on the Thursday morning. I’ll then be able to install the verticals, set up the station and be on the air in the late afternoon on Thursday August 15.
