Just finished up the 160L on the beach in Sao Tome with my new friends.
Just the start of this 63ac estate on the Ocean! The closest station to EU from the USA!
The smell of salt-water, less than 1000′ to the Atlantic and the Bay of Fundy in Eastport, ME from this 100/ft tower on the sea! Across the bay is VE9 (Campobello, N.B.)
My Family visits Eastport, ME to enjoy the new QTH. Pic taken on the pier leading to the Bay. Missing is my oldest son Ray Jr.
L to R. Ray W2RE, Lori KB2HZI, Kelly and Bobby KC2UPN on the Bay of Fundy!!
Please listen for us Sept 19-26, 2015 during the special event. Station is located on 6300′ with wire antenna on 100′ R45 tower overlooking Port-au-Prince. This operation is on solar power and 50w.
Antenna is an OCF @ 80′ sitting at 6300′ ASL overlooking Port-au-Prince Haiti.
The team made over 3,000 Qsos in a few days operating Holiday style! Pictures taken by Olavur OY1OF.

Its time to get my Private Pilot License. In the photo is my first lesson on a 2006 Cessna 172 SkyHawk. Why a plane? With Eleven sites we own and maintain in the NE for RHR, I need to travel faster.
From 1984-2013 I worked for Pepsi-Cola. One day I decided after 28+ years that this is the day I retire from the company. My truck on the last day! 🙂
