|We already knew
in advance, that our location would be quite unfavorable as
a good DX-location, but it was even worse then we expected.
The only accessible beach is located in a small bay with mountains
which cover the horizon from north-west to south. So we had
a high wall in front of us which covered east coast-USA, Europe,
Asia and Africa.
STONY beach is less then 30 feet deep and just behind begins
the foot of the mountains.
There is even not enough
space to install tents. Anyhow at that "beach"
some fishermen had built some huts as shelter for their
equipment. The island has no population because no water
As often before, also on
this expedition we met EXTREMELY POLITE fishermen on the
island. They are really a very special kind of people. They
helped us to carry our equipments, shared their facilities
with us and offered more food as we possible could eat.
Day and night someone was preparing delicious fish and invited
us to join them.
