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 daily.

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 the world.

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.
