St. Vincent and the Grenadines
Bequia Beach Hotel - Bequia
24th February - 8th March 2022
With such successful trips over the past 11 years I've booked again for another trip to paradise.. On this occasion I will be staying at the Bequia Beach Hotel on the Island of Bequia - I hope to work SSB & FT8 and, if anyone requests it in advance, I'm willing to give it a go on CW.
This will be a new radio venue for me as the one I have been using for the past 11 years have introduced new Covid restriction which precludes me from visiting there for the foreseeable future. I will be staying in a villa where I will be using the same 10m Vertical with radials. Bequia Island generates it's own '220 Volts - Like previous years I will be armed with filtered mains distribution board and a large ferrite which I wrapped around the mains lead which should limit any mains borne interference.
To get to Bequia Island I will fly form London Heathrow to Barbados and then take a 50-minute flight to Bequia Airport - St. Vincent. Bequia Island is situated near the southern tip of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and is the largest of the Grenadine Islands being only 7 square miles in size. and has a population of approximately 5,300.
Bequia Hotel is a family run business and is set amidst 10 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens on the pristine crescent-shaped Friendship Bay Beach with stunning views of Mustique and Grenadine archipelago. Spacious luxury accommodation includes Suites, Cottages & expansive Villas benefitting from the hotel’s beachfront setting.
