[NEWS UPDATE] Bernard is currently in southern India (look out for VU2BMS) and recently sent a short update about his upcoming H44MS trip:

Below is a You Tube video. It shows the official opening of a new wharf which took place 3km away from my usual accommodation / amateur radio QTH in a village at Solomon Islands. Now I hope I can soon travel by ship nearby to my accommodation instead of an uncomfortable 4 hours truck ride over unsealed roads!

[OCTOBER 29] Bernard, DL2GAC again plans activity from Manakwai village, nearby Malu’u (northern Malaita island) as H44MS during February 10 to May 8, 2023. QRV on SSB & FT8. QSL via H/c. 

H44MS (L) with H44NT (R) in 2015.
