Last operating trip to OA land, I had the pleasure of assisting the
Radio Club Peruano in rehabbing their satellite station.
The only bittersweet pill taking these strange trips is that the
chances of working someone there, myself, from home, is almost nil.
Leaving a working station was my way of hoping someone would use it.
OA4/XQ3SA has been active from the club station in FH17. It still
works, four years after rehab.

Blasting off on the next trip with some new (well tested) gear in a few days:
World class snorkeling and ham radio. What a vacation. Cheaper than
disney by half. Certainly less dangerous.
Time to introduce the little monsters to Nemo.
