Thanks to all for the QSOs and to the many who found for us for multi-band
We more than tripled our last year's score, even with low sun spots. 
The rig was an IC-7000 and THP Amp.
The antennas: 160m - two phased Inverted Ls;
80/40m - two phased HF2Vs verticals;                                           
        Home made receiving loop for 160m/80m;
20m,15m,10m - 2 R5s verticals phased broadside to US/JA;
        and - 2 R5s verticals phased broadside to EU
We had a backup IC-7000 and amp but never needed them.
In total we transported 500 pound of rigs, antennas, and coax in a private
plane for our second CQWW SSB from the site: Crooked Island Lodge,Pittstown
Point, Crooked Island, Bahamas. QSOs are also good for IOTA NA-113 and ARLHS
Lighthouse BAH-005.
It was a nice surprise to find 10m open several times. 15m was our best band.
We confirmed that verticals play very well near salt water and phased verticals
play very well.
