Default New contact in the Pacific.....14th


Made it to Wallis & Futuna Islands this afternoon - 210 Div. - FW
A new one for me.
This week Philip will be on Futuna, then going to Wallis next week.







Uvea is the Polynesian name for Wallis Island, situated 340km east of Samoa and 3,000km north west of Tahiti.

The centre of Wallis Island is semi-desert with pandanus trees. There are no venomous creatures. The island is encircled by a lagoon some 50 kilometres by 95 square kilometres and seafood and fish are plentiful.

Thanks for the heads up, Larry.

Made the hook up with Phillip on the other island yesterday - S9 report from him. He has been working many stations from the US now.
