Bob also mentions:

I hope to get some locals hooked on ham radio and start a radio club, and T2 could become a little more active. This is the first time I am carrying ham gear, usually I just do the jobs and leave. Later in May I will be in Marshall Islands followed by Kiribati, have yet to investigate licensing in these places.
