    Hope they find the rat bastards who took that. Certainly not something easily fencible on an island like that! What use would they have for it! I can see them stealing shoes, but Radios and antennas??

    Tom is a straightshooter; a proud guy and profoundly self-reliant. I like to describe him as 'tough with a gentle touch'. Especially on a keyer!

    Let's see what he needs first and then respond. IMO your offer is an excellent one, and there are certainly those willing to donate much more as well. Let's see what he needs and see what he'll take from others:)

    I just want to be sure he can get back stateside if needed....no word , for example, if they stole passport.

    HAVE PITY ON THEM! THEY'RE JUST POOR, NOT EDUCATED NATIVES. MAYBE THEY DON'T HAVE SOMETHING TO EAT?... SORRY, IF THE EQUIPMENT JUST DISASSEMBLE, OR THROW.

    When hams go on dxpeditions they commonly leave supplies for those who live there...

    No pity involved.

    I am waiting for Tom to say he's OK with this crowdfunding...nothing yet.

    He knows I am ready to provide him funds and equipment, along with others.

    QRO CLUB has an amp and a FTDX-1200 ready to send, if he wants them. Probably a Begali paddle as well. Let Tom decide.

    I know you are a young person Eugene UR3TQN But before resorting to stealing someones personal belongings and a visitor to your country of all things,:( Most people would ask for help if they need to eat and I do not think it is as stone age as you assume. Best of DX to you Eugene and 73'se
