“We just got back home and already miss Bermuda. My XYL and I had a good
5 days of escape from our cold Canadian reality and thought this time we
would try Bermuda. You can’t miss Ed’s place since many hams have
visited him and enjoyed staying and operating at his place. What a
beautiful island and a perfect contest position! You could not imagine a
better spot overlooking the ocean. Fantastic! Well, the island is too
beautiful to spend all of our stay operating so we spent a good amount
of our time exploring it and operated the radio when I was “free of
I thought 100W would not be enough for a decent operation but I was
wrong. I enjoyed nonstop pile ups from any direction with an exception
maybe from JA. Working with his FT920 and 3 el was a pleasure on the
upper bands. Lower bands have dipoles or G5RV to choose from. With part
time operating I made around 800 QSOs.
Big thanks to Ed for his help and great service! I wish we could have
stayed longer. Hope to be back when time permits.
