Good news from Fafa Island Resort. They say that internet is available
in reception area with wireless LAN.
It means that I can check/send e-mail and upload Log on OnLine Log server
I am planning to stay Fafa Island in Tonga in Feb, 2011. It is small island
just north of Tongatapu Island and takes about 30 minutes by boat from
Nuku'alofa. Fale (bungalow) at north beach seems very nice for all over
They say there has been some QRVs in the past by DL, I, VK and W. I will
be the first by JA ! They know amateur radio very well. It is possible
to install antenna just on the beach. Fale are located at west beach and
north beach. Of course, booked Fale is at north beach.
