Paradise Island is a highly developed and commercial small island just over a short bridge from Nassau. Many people don't know that Nassau is not the name of the Bahamian Island, it is the major city on the island called New Providence.

This was my very first Dxpedition (if you don't count Canada). I didn't know what to expect. We were on the 13th floor of the hotel. I used a set of Hustler Mobile whips which I mounted to the iron hand rail on the balcony. Don't laugh, they worked great! To make a band change I had to unclamp the mast, pull it in, unscrew one whip, screw on another and re-clamp. Needless to say, I did not fill requests to QSY to another band during the contest.

The best food I ever found anywhere in the Caribbean by a wide margin was in Nassau and on Paradise Island. The service outside the hotel however was very typical Caribbean, "Oh . . . You wanted your food tonight?" If you've never had it before, be sure to try Conch Salad. By the way, it's pronounced 'konk'.
