St Paul Island in the Pribillof Is. chain is 4 miles wide, and 14 miles long, again, in the middle of the Bering Sea. I'm pretty mercenary about spending 4 months living on an Aleut Indian owned island, population about 450 folks with their tight knit island society. Believe me, I wasn't there pro bono by any means. Maybe in another 50 years or so I can tell you what I was doing there.
The birds? There are several species of birds that can only be viewed on St. Paul Is. Those species' summer on St Paul Is. and winter on the Kommander Is. of Russia, owned by the Russian military. Nobody goes to the Kommander's for anything, especially seismic boats surveying the ocean floor.
Check out the "Red Faced Cormorant". 
One note, I had my brand new Kenwood TS-430 and a small MFJ wire tuner with me, and could run JA & HL stations on 30m cw, 24/7. It was fun, and on my return home to So. Louisiana, there was a shoebox of bureau cards to answer.
And all this time everybody thought I was just a pretty face :-) .

Dick,
Sandy and I are both lifelong birdwatchers. In fact, we met on St Paul Is., in the Pribillof Is. chain right smack-dab in the middle of the Bering Sea.
Here's some contact info for the Galveston Ornithological Society. They have a large friendly group there.  
Contact info: galornsoc4@...
Have a safe trip.

The xyl and I are heading out around Feb 19th for a bird watching adventure in TX.  I am planning on operating from some of the grids I need for my goal of activating as many grids as I can.  We are going thru EM51, EM41, EM42, EM53, EM42, EM32, and EM31.  We will be taking the more Southern route thru LA so we will hit EL59 and EL39 both ways according to the current plan.  Most of our time will be spent around the Galveston area in EL29.  I don't think we will be hitting any grids further West on this trip.  Remind me of any grids 070 members need.  We also plan on activating St. Catherine Creek NWR (K-0392) and the Natchez Trace Parkway National Parkway (K-0642).  I will try to post when we will be in each area.

Valentine's Day

Jerry N9AVY
 

Just made a long trip through deep snow to tower out back to check 40/80m sloper.  Big old U-bolt is blocking access to coax connector on remote coax switch and it's too cold plus walking with cane is tough in deep, crusty snow.  So it would asppear that I'm outta luck for contest unless I give up WARC dipole. 

This started when antennas were iced over and I tried to clean up remote coax switch, but dropped it off bench (ol' butterfingers !), but wrecked at least one relay - drat !  Would have ordered another one, but MFJ/Ameritron is out of parts to buid them and distributors are out of stock as well. If looking at Greedbay, the prices are crazy. Located another switch from a friend who has it sitting on shelf for years and it's mine but it's a long drive to get it; however, since hospital episode last month I'm not driving at present (self-enforced).

If by some miracle I get the dual running this weekend, I might be heard, but it a longshot.  Another trip to backyard with all this crunchy snow may do me in if I donn't freeze first (temp. 25F maybe, but feels much colder ! Was 17F earlier.) Brrrrrrr !!!!

Wished I could have done antenna maintenance in the Fall like I planned, but y'all know how plans work out. Emoji  "The best laid plans of mice & men oft times go astray."

Hope everyone has a good time on the 14th and makes lots of contacts.  Keep feeding the crazy checker because I need more work !
