Village of Rincon, Bonaire where we operated as PJ4J, PJ4/AI2N, PJ4/N2ZN and PJ4/WJ2O. This little village of Rincon, Bonaire boasts a population of 5,000. That’s about the same as my home Town of Camden, NY. Over the years I often hear comments that all my home town has are gas stations and bars. Well, I’m happy to learn that this village only has one gas station but twice as many watering holes like this one as home. The locals here have priorities!
