Below is from my Belize trip in October 2008

This is Bill Gipps, Canadian Call Sign, VE7ISV - also with the Belizian Call Sign of V31BG - I was QRV to Belize - left Canada on October 2nd, 2008.  I overnighted in Texas, and then  flew to Belize City on October 3rd.  By nightfall I was in Placencia, Belize.  Here is the link to where I was staying, and the Ham Shack -  I was staying upstairs at the Palmetto Place Guest House.  This was a solo vacation - just me, the beach, and a Ham Shack.

Check out the Journal.  It has links to pictures, log files, etc.

I intended to work SSB on as many bands as I could.  If I was really pushed, I was going to work CW (Morse Code) as well.  I've been working hard on my Morse Code.

I planned on using this website to track my vacation, how I did with my Ham Radio contacts, and share what I expect to be a special vacation with my friends, and fellow Hams.  If this vacation works well - I'm going to do another one as soon as I can.  This Web Site is intended to become a living document on one of my favourite hobbies - Amateur (Ham) Radio.

Bill is back in Canada as of late Monday, October 13, 2008.

Sunday night, 17:40 Local - I'm done - a rest, dinner out, and then finish the packing.  I fly back to British Columbian Monday a.m.
