I sure hope for your sake that your future XYL doesn't have an objection...
My first honeymoon (early 1980's) was in St. Thomas USVI. Had snuck the HT
along, never ended up using it. Biggest clue was when doing some
sightseeing the first evening, I spotted the tower of the late KV4AA, and
when I openly expressed some curiousity about it, I got a dirty look and a
later lecture on how she didn't want to spend her honeymoon around radios...
which is one of the many reasons it didn't work out, but that's another
My second honeymoon (1992) was in Puerto Rico. Also brought the HT along,
even had made arrangements to meet up with a few local hams, but chickened
out -- the previous experience had an effect. So wouldn't you know it, at
the end of the week, we're getting on the shuttle bus from the rental car
place when I spot the driver's 2M HT (I'd say who if I could remember the
call). We had a nice, short chat on the way to the terminal!On the plane
home, I found out that if I HAD broken the HT out, she not only wouldn't
have minded, but would have enjoyed a visit! Live & learn...
So, I sure hope your fiance likes amateur radio!

standing over me saying, "How do I reload this damn thing?"
