Honduras DX Photos

Most of these photos were taken when I lived in Honduras as a Peace Corps volunteer in 1982-1984. The exceptions are the Sani Radio photo and some of the HRVC photos, which were taken in a short visit to Tegucigalpa in 1990.

DX Shacks in Honduras

I had an FRG-7 and a Radio West Ferrite loop to DX with. The top picture was my shack for my first six months in Santa Barbara when I lived at a house in town. The second picture was at a house in a village a few miles north that I lived in for a month. I made the table myself but paid to have the chairs made. In January 1983 I moved to the village of Galeras, just outside Santa Barbara. That's where I added the shelves. That was my DX shack for the next sixteen months when I moved to Comayagua and had to make another table. I never did take a picture of that shack but it looked similar.
