Please read first when was the last Clublog upgrade.

I am here for a longer period of time.
I'm trying to be QRV on sunrises and sunsets for all countries and continents.
I work on all bands from 160 meters to 10 meters / no 5 MHz / CW, SSB and RTTY.
Please watch bands and cluster ! QSO is not a problem. I am not able to negotiate dozens sked a day.

Cook Islands consist of 15 islands full of beautiful beaches and azure lagoons with just 240 sq km that are dispersed in more than 2 million sq km of Pacific Ocean. Captain James Cook explored the islands in the 18th century and the country was named after him. The islands lie behind the east of the International Data Line. So you can experience “traveling in time” here – where else you can spend a day nearly twice (when you arrive) and then the second day nearly not at all (when you depart).
Rarotonga is main and the largest island of Cook Islands(67 sq km) is encircled by coral reef. It is famous for its blue lagoon with white beaches. The villages are mainly near the coast; behind it are fields and farms together with forested mountains that dominate the islands from everywhere.
The capital city and at the same time the Cook Island´s only proper town is Avarua in Rarotonga in the north coast.
