| Wallis Island (OC-054) Mini Pedi Report
|Final update: Apr 21, 2009
It was only 2 persons that though we came back from Wallis,
asked the advice to do QRV from Wallis to me. Because one person
was 5W1SA/Atsuo, a letter was only received from one Japanese substantially
before long. This isn't interested in Wallis for the Japanese, but
it may be because it thought that a try to Wallis was only difficult.
Actually, a try to Wallis Island isn't so difficult. Though
English was hardly understood to Wallis, I was made that, and there was
no problem, either. Even if I can't speak French, the owner of the
hotel can speak English. An order is decided to be made only of English
after all because the owner of the hotel takes it to the restaurant, too.
You take a vacation for two weeks, and you have only to go
for Wallis more comfortably. Anyway, you should think about a method
to go to Fiji or New Caledonia. If that is possible, you will be
able to ride on the airplane of Aircalin for Walls.
The airplane of Aircalan for Wallis is big more than I thought
of it. Before an airplane flies and passes, it won't need to pray
to God. Then, if an airplane is big, a big antenna will notice that
it can go according to the excess charge, too.
| Then, small fire noise occurred in this in the Nandy international
airport when we flew to Wallis though it was a digression. Honesty,
we were impatient. Is there a guarantee which will surely fly tomorrow
if an airplane doesn't fly today? Though we felt uneasy and full, there
was no problem after all, and it was on schedule.
This is Wallis Airport. A taxi and a bus are not in Wallis
island. When an airplane arrives, all meet it like this.
| Our baggage is this degree. It was about 70kg with 2 persons. We
reached it at last to Wallis without an excess charge somehow.

| There are only three hotels in Wallis. It is L'ALBATROS that
we stayed. It sticks to the ham radio, and this hotel is very understanding.
Most QSO was done by this Giboshi Diople. From 30m to 10m bands
are covered only with this dipole.
This is the 40m Vertical.
A tentative result could get it.
This is the 6m 4ele.
It was no QSO after all.
This is the FW1W's Shack. Two little desks in the side of the bed
were used. It was the combination of IC-7000 plus Tokyo Hy-Power
HL-450B. Center: FW1W(JM1LJS) "Hide"
| Though it was a digression, there was a problem in packing of the
baggage, and a Paddle was such condition, and strained nerves in the CW
| This is the FW1Z's Shack. IC-706-MkIIG was used.
As for first Wallis, it was very satisfactory for us even in not
I will have to answer your doubt by one. Though I was surprised,
too, we issued one letter suffix forgiven. I used a special technique,
but I was just only requested a call sign of the letter. That had
one letter suffix and two two letter suffix. I thought that I was
ignored one letter suffix. But, that one letter suffix was done as
to the license. If, can this call sign go on when I go to Wallis
again? I don't know that.
An impression of the L'ALBATROS is written at the end. As
for this hotel, famous DX Peditioner OH2BH's group and G3TXF's group
were operated, too. A site is large, and the full size Diople of
80m can be built. To be anxious only about one is that it felt a doubt
with the performance of Vertical. Probably, I think that ground resistance
is not so good. You will have to choose a dipole in the antenna of
