The Island's lifeline with the outside world.

 

LCM from the French Amphibious Assault Ship - MISTRAL.

 

Looking down from Putty Hill at the Briars (foreground) and Jamestown to the North.

 

The 78m Malaysian registered ocean going landing craft the N.P. GLORY 4 chartered by the South African construction company Basil Read contracted to build an airstrip on St. Helena Island due for completion in 2016.  This ship shuttles between Walvis Bay and the Island bringing all necessary equipment.  Seen here making history as being the first ship to ever dock at Island, in this case at the Sheers in Ruperts to a makeshift jetty extending a little way from the shore.  Loaded with 30 & 40 Ton Volvo articulated dump trucks, Caterpillar D9 & D6 Bulldozers.

 

 

The correct mailing address:

Bruce R. Salt

PO Box 5

Jamestown

St. Helena Island

South Atlantic Ocean

STHL1ZZ (VIA GREAT BRITAIN)

Note: Due to South African Customs opening mail & parcels it has become necessary to again adjust my mailing address and try to steer all mail away from coming via South Africa.

When mailing please remember to include a self addressed envelope (please do not use stamps on your envelope from the country that you are mailing from) and 2 US Dollars or Sterling/Euro Notes.   No IRC's or Euro Coins - thank you.

Strictly NO eQSL or LOTW - DIRECT ONLY

If I disappear from the air suddenly while in QSO or running a pileup it is because there has been a powercut.  The Island's powerhouse (2 x 1 MW generators) is always dogged with problems.

Antennas: Force 12 C-4E & most recently (2014) a pair of 4 Element LFA Yagis for 6m from InnovAntennas www.InnovAntennas.com  e mail: Justin G0KSC justin@innovantennas.com

My QSL cards are printed by the best in the QSL printing industry Tipolitografia dei F.lli Bonanno A. e V. A. snc www.printed.it   e mail:  Alfio Bonnano it9ejw@printed.it since 2001 when I discovered that he had sponsored the QSL Cards for the ZD7K & ZD8K Dx-pedition in 2000 by the Barry Amateur Radio Club - UK, absolute works of art everytime resulting in impressive QSL cards printed on quality card stock.

St. Helena Island is a very tiny & remote Island in the South Atlantic Ocean without any aircraft not even a resident helicopter, so please be patient when mailing your letter as everything is brought to the Island by the supply ship ST. HELENA the last Royal Mail ship left in the world apparently and it is not unusual for a letter to take 3 months from the time it is dispatched to the time that you receive it back.  I do QSL 100% and process the cards as rapidly as possible but always have to await the return of the supply ship.

I used to wonder what all the craze was about when being inundated with requests to "please visit my QRZ page, I need your flag" and initially couldn't understand the attraction to having a flag from a country until I installed the flag counters and now I too am attracted but will not under any circumstances e mail anyone requesting them to visit my page as it can be somewhat annoying especially if you live on a very remote Island like I do with a very limited bandwidth and the speed of a dial-up connection.  It's intriguing to see which countries visit my page and all I can say is thank you for visiting and look forward to working you on the air sometime either on 6m or HF.  I am an avid 6m DX-er and run a beacon on 50.007mhz courtesy of Dave N3DB and company.  I also have a keen interest in 2m SSB & FM which I need to develop upon.

I am also chasing US Counties, a quest that I began in 2011, in addition to this I am also chasing IOTA (Islands on the Air) numbers despite the fact that I live on a tiny & very remote Island myself which is AF-022.

At this point I should mention KX2A - Jan who in more ways than one and through his generosity has enabled the five operational ZD7 stations to remain on the air at times of difficulty through the geograpical location of the Island.  He is a small man with a BIG HEART!!!!!!!!!! 

I was born in Wittenoom, a Blue Asbestos mining town in Western Australia in 1970, so I am a long way from my birthplace now and even more remote than Wittenoom is today.  I guess all of the kids (like me) played in the Blue Asbestos chippings, our parents unaware of the danger it presented to health.
