YV5IQJ and YV2IF

We constructed several vertical antennas for 20, 17, 15, 12 and 10m.

Also we used a tape-type antenna which is easily adjustable for any frequency between 3.5 and 30 MHz.
Due to the tropical storm "Debby" in our area, the noise level on 80m was extremely high, so we could not arrange any contacts. Anyhow, I had CW-contacts on 7 MHz with European and Asian stations, but as I found later back home, nobody spotted me in the cluster.

To be honest, Los Frailes is not the most beautiful place in the Caribbean, BUT it is THE paradise for divers and snorklers.
Daily, dozens of tourists from all over the world, charter boats from Margarita Island to enjoy in front of Los Frailes the wonders of the tropical seas.

THOUSANDS of most colorful fishes of many species live in the waters around the island for the delight of all observers. Visitors can snorkel for hours in the calm water without any dangerous currents.

I even could observe 2 whales in the morning-hours passing nearby to our place.

With these boats the divers visiting the island.
For those who are fishing a few miles offshore can catch monsters like this:
