Well back to Apia, Western Samoa for an attempt to visit Tokelau ZK3. Due to the boat schedule or lack there of, did not make it to Tokelau.

So stayed at the Samoa Marina Hotel, Lucy and Tonya are still here. Set up shop in one of the Air conditioned rooms. Found 5W1AS Atsuo and enjoyed using his station for most of operation.

Second goal was to find a Ham Frendly location to rent now and for future ham visits..... still pending.

We plan to depart Western Samoa on or about the 18th of September and join the party at the TradeWinds hotel in American Samoa. The gang from Swains KH8S be arriving a day or two following are arrival back in AS. Party will begin. We will see them off from the airport.

N7CQQ, N6XT will continue to operate from AS until our planned departure on October 1. We expect ( or will try to) setup our station at the Trade Winds hotel for the remainder of our stay. We might also have access to the AH8LG station for QRO operation. We will set up for 60 meter operation from WS also. As soon as we setup, a schedule for 60 meters,it will be posted here on your favorite DX news source.


PS: A special thank you to Atsuo, 5W1SA, for his opening his home/ham stationand very generous support while in Western Samoa. He drove us around and showed us the ropes here until we felt comfortable to do it on our own. Atsuo has a computer and wireless internet business here in Samoa.

Atsuo is forming a Ham Club here for visiting ham from around the world.We have contributed a donation to get him started. His plan, on the one acre hill top, is to get the property surveyed, the weeds cut, haul in some crushed rock and then obtain a 20 foot shipping container. I offered to purchase half of a shipping container to help get Atsuo started. ( I might get my Call Sign on the side of the container?)

We have made plans to return to Western Samoa, next year, to build antennas and work on the site. This is an aggressive schedule for Samoa, I will keep you posted on the progress.

Atsuo will be putting up a web page to post pictures and progress notes. The web site will have suggested lodging sites, logistic information, car rental info, licensing info, and a list of the Charter Members of the Samoa Ham Club. I will add a section to the web site to give details of our attempt to visit Tokelau, ZK3.

So here is your chance to make the DXCC program stronger by getting a world class ham site going on Samoa. N7CQQ
