I spent my last week of my South Pacific Tour on the wonderful Island of Fiji. I stayed near the airport at The Aquarius on the Beach Hotel which is on the West Coast near the City of Nadi.
Room 200. Upstairs. That’s were WJ2O Stayed and operated 3D2FD
Here is the 5Z4 5-band vertical antenna designed by OZ7AM.
Feed point of the 5 band vertical.
First arrival from the ship. Time to catch up on the internet and enjoy a local brew.
The Pacific Ocean Beach at Aquarius on the Beach.
Fine entertainment at the hotel.
Just a short walk from my hotel is the Island Surf Beauty & Spa where you can get a great massage by somebody like Rita here.
Shopping in Port Denarau
A visit to Port Denarau to see how the rich VKs/ZLs (Australians/New Zealanders) live.
Everybody has to have one of these.
Inside this Hard Rock is a fellow ham’s guitar, Joe Walsh, WB6ACU.
Nadi is Fiji’s second largest city located on the West side of the island. The largest and Nation’s Capital city is Suva situated in the Southeastern part.
Gotta Eat . . .
I ordered way too much food at the Sitar Restaurant in Nadi.
At the pizza shop next door.
Waiting at the airline counter

Antoine, 3D2AG, is a valuable resource to get your license. He lives right in the capital city of Suva. I recommend you contact him for information on the process.
Traveling the South Pacific
The last leg of the trip is spent on the Island of Fiji where the ship from Baker (KH1) dropped us off.
