Hotel Four Seasons
Here's how the station looked at my first hotel. I'm quite sure I used CT Contest software in DXpedition mode back then on that old DOS computer.
My Hustler mobile whips were used for a "go anywhere" antenna shown here hanging off the balcony.
Waiting for our ship to come in
We had some complications with a lot of our equipment held up in Jamacian customs. We spent a couple of days here at the hotel waiting.

World traveller Larry, NF6S, joined us.
Sailing for KP1
Morgan's Harbour from 300 yards out
Finally we have everything loaded on board and leaving for Navassa.
Kingston, Jamaica from 10 miles out.
A handful of contacts were made in the prefix contest while marine mobile. We used this R7 vertical antenna. From left to right: WJ2O, Toshi, JR8RUZ, and Vance, W5IJU.
Jamiaca Day Trip
A view of Kingston from the mountains to the north
Upon returning from Navassa Bob, K0IYF, and I took in a day trip to the mountains around Kingston.
This is a typical country schoolhouse in the Caribbean. They also double as hurricane shelters. They were built from donations from other countries. This one was Canadian built.
A typical roadside vendor found out in the country. Jamaicans are not real fond of having their pictures taken. This guy insisted that I owed him $5.00 for doing so.
What's a road trip without stopping at the local wattering hole?
Bob, K0IYF, fitting in with the locals.
