Chris, my XYL, at the ham shack we rented from V31MD

What a wonderful place to visit! The local people are the friendliest I have met on any of my trips.

We rented the ham shack of Bob Fox, V31MD in Belize, Central America.

It is located on a peninsula off the mainland near the village of Placencia.
