    Received the QRZ stickers prior to my departure for Vietnam. I usually like to operate from covered table on the terrace built into the hillside at a hotel in Vung Tau (Ok30MH), but this time I choose to rent one of the air conditioned 10'x10' cabins on the terrace due to rains and high humidity, (and as an added bonus I don't have to lug my gear up and down the hillside every day).

    AIR CONDITIONED ?? - :rolleyes: - You should be in a "Nipa Hut" (on stilts with pigs & chickens underneath !) w/a ice chest of 33 or Tiger beer iced-down. (or you could splurge & have some brown-bottle San Miguel sneaked in from the P.I. !!) :p

    LOL...

    I did the nipa hut thing in the PI in the 70's. If you had ice in your cooler you were lucky my friend!

    Here I prefer Tiger...but San Miguel is readily available here in Vung Tau as well.

    I personally enjoy the SE Asian climate, but humidity and rain can wreak havoc on electronic equipment.

    Hi David, I am back in ConUS now for the holidays. I plan to be back in Việt Nam in late January to prep for Tết, and thru February.

    In Sept. '17 I worked Ed (KH2L) and the TX5EG DxPedition, but propagation to the east did not seem to be in my favor this year. Hopefully, 2019 will prove better and I can work eastward to the US west coast with CW, and I'll also be setup for FT-8 if all else fails. :)

    I have a list of folks to SKED when I am in country, so I'll give you a shout next time I hit the ground in 2019.
