Here is the First Air jet that took us from Ottawa to Iqualuit in Northern Canada.
I remember thinking this building looked like a submarine on stilts.
Inside the terminal at Iqualuit.
Arrived at Nuuk
The guys took care of my luggage for me.
This is the front of the terminal building.
Hotel Hans Egede
This is where I first stayed in Nuuk. This is the only hotel in Nuuk.
Outside the Window
Here is the view from the hotel window.
Even though there are many multi-family dwellings, there is still a big housing shortage.
Being a prisioner in Nuuk is a bit different that what you may be used to. There are no fences, no guards. The prisioners get up and go out into the community to their jobs during the day and then come "home" to prison.
Finn Jakobsen, OX3JX, is the prison warden. On my second day he checked me out of the hotel and moved me into the prison. Here was my cell.
Here is the sea while standing next to the club station's tower.
OX3NUK Club Station
This is Finn Jakobsen, OX3JX, and Rene.
OX3NUK Club Station
This is Finn Jakobsen, OX3JX with Dana.
Inside the club station was very modern and spacious.
My Kenwood TS-940 and Computer.
A little extra signal boost if the time might require it.
This is the VHF Room inside club station OX3NUK.
Still inside the club station there was this comfortable area where we all got together and chatted a bit.
This is the tri-bander at club station OX3NUK.
This is the satellite antenna with the surrounding neighborhood.
From The Street
Here is a typical street in Nuuk where you can see the ham shack and the towers on the hill.
Here is a street walking back from the club station to the hotel.
This is the prison boat that we took a ride on.
Dana and Rene coming down the dock.
Finn was the boat captain.
You come across small icebergs even in July.
Inside the Boat
Nuuk by the Sea
Here's what the capital city looks like from the water.
No shortage of pleasure craft here.
I had a nice tour of the telephone office during my visit. This is where you get your license.
