SUSAN MECKLEY, PO BOX 1210, PAHRUMP, NEVADA 8904`   FISH AND WILD LIFE...HONOLULU HAD DENIED PERMISSION TO LAND AT KH3...THEY SAY FUNDING....HOW DOES MY BEING THERE CREATE FUNDING...write your senator...askling that I be given permission to land on Johnston Atoll..I dont know, but so much for the US Government serving the people.....KH3 PERMISSION TO LAND APPROVED BY USAF ..Been waiting for one year to get permission from US Fish and Wildlife. Problem is, will I get too old to sail before I get fish/wildlife permission??   Can you imagine it, when 4 miles from Johnston ISland I had engine problems. Well under Admiralty law I had 72 hours manditory "bunkering and refuge".  So at least I got 72 hours operating.... /KH3....the pileup was unimaginable....WOW. Got copy of License letter from USAF to land at KH3...so ifyou have right dates., I will answer ur qsl (Log book lost in hurricane at sea)

.QSL direct...SASE a must.......QSL via buro is ok. Appreciate grid and county on card. I get stacks of qsl cards and am funding my solo dxpeditions from my social security, sase is important.....next stop  V7

Susan Meckley, PO Box 1210, Pahrump, NV 89041. Now 77 years old

Please excuse my voice...had throat cut while in Alameda, CA...voice box put back together with plates ,but voice is bad....and it tires easily...thus I operate mainly cw ,At 0500z I am on 14036 most evenings

Got new FM radar, uses 1/10th watt with better resolution....sure...I'll wait till I install it to see just how good it is.

ELMER, my african gray parrot first mate has been stolen....sad loss. He was family.

Spent ten days in ICU at Army hospital....long recuperation time....looks like my sailing days a put on hold.(Looking for early fall departure, that is if leg heals ok) But at least I am still here...seems like KH3 is put off again....but dont worry, I will make it.

FANTASTIC....RELATIVES have contacted me...I am NOT the last of the clan. Discovered Cousins on east coast...It is nice to email with relatives and recall the past.

Now in Honolulu in the "black hole of Hawaii" as far as ham radio is concerned. WIll be here till receive ok to land at KH3 Left for KH3 but 3 days out Got tooth ache and returned to Honolulu....had oral surgery and am now frightened of hurricanes....so delay till end of hurricane season.....don't fret...I will be there.

HAWAII...NAVY PEARL HARBOR....best darn marina in Hawaii...

5 Jan 07..Tried to start engine for trip to Johnston Island.,.. starter,solenoid, and ignition switch burnt up....wow all that smoke..talk about Panic time....anyway, they are now replaced and I should be on was in a couple of days (Mid Jan) Having Diesel Mech check out engine for me...glad it did not happen on Johnston Island.

Did delivery of Hunter 420 from Alameda, CA to Pearl Harbor. It was a pleasure, I normally am single handed. Had 3 person crew on this 24 day trip..went south of Baja and then west to Pearl Harbor...great trip. *********I operate KH6BB from USS Missouri quite often....usually 14028 on CW.

Got personal problems cant leave KH6 yet...then Johnston island, Marshalls (for hurricane season), Kwajalein, couple of atolls in Marshalls for new IOTA, then Tarawa, from there who knows.

Watch for W7KFI/???? or any south seas call ending in KFI

************************************ Two day trip to Honolulu...lots of rain (what else?)...came down the channel between Oahu and Maui at Dawn so there were only 15-20 foot waves with only 30mph winds...nice sleigh ride to Honolulu. Very impressive passing Diamon Head....but when Entering Pearl Harbor Navy Base my engine overheated so I was visited by the base security boat and boarded for inspection...then the "assist" boat came out and towed me into Rainbow Bay Marina (Navy).

WOW....what a marina...nicest facilities I have seen anywhere, head and shoulders above Paradise Village Marina, Puerto Vallarta Mexico. *****

Next stop will be Johnston Island (now un-inhabited) for a rest stop and then on to Woje Atoll in Marshall Islands. *********************************** LEFT MEXICO April 28th...36 day (3600 mile) passage to Hilo, Hawaii..fantastic reception, radio interviews with Art Bell (Coast to Coast AM), local radio...BBC for their shortwave program "OUTLOOK"...front page of local paper (Tribune Hearld), even complimentary food at Kens pancake house....

I have never been anywhere where there are so many friendly people. Truly if there were a Marina here, I would go no further. will be on 14028 and 14240, yl network, and 14300.My operating schedule is: Things have been so bad down here that there are:14028 cw, 14240 SSB usually around 0230Z. Propogation to the mainland from Hawaii (20 meters) is usually only 5pm local to 8pm local.

ZK1 North Cook Islands,KH8 American Samoa,5V Westrn Samoa,ZK3 tokelau, FWllis/Fortuna 3D2 Rotuma, VK9M Mellish Reef´,H40 Temotu,VK9Z Willis Island,P29 Papua New Guina,9M8 Borneo,V8 Brunei, VU4 Adaman Islands,HS Thailand H4 Solomon Islands,T30 Kiribati,YJ Espirito Santo(Vanatu),FK New Caldonia,T2 Tuvalu,H44 Solomon Islands,9M2 Indonesia, V6 Truk Lagoon ...Marshall Islands, and finally N.
