This is a relay from Jim, KH2D, well known contester from Guam. It may
be awhile before we hear Guam on the air in the contests. Ken N4UK
Typhoon is over. We got our ass kicked. Concrete telephone poles
island snapped. Wires everywhere. No power. No water. Probably be 2-3
until they put the power back together. First typhoon I was ever
house (concrete) was rattling and vibrating like hell. Eye went right
the island, and we were too far south to be in the eye, so we got the
winds for about 3 hours. No trees left anywhere, except 2 little
mess. WH2U had a window blow out in radio room, about 2 feet from amp,
the wall caved in, so whole condo was flooded. KH2JU has 6 inches of
the shack. NH2A house flooded. KH2A house 6 feet of water, and porch
away. They are saying this is worst typhoon since Karen in 1962.
I saw a bunch of 40 foot containers out in the road.....
Anyway, I got the generator going, and I am gonna look for you
QRP, only 100 watts so probably won't work. I can do email with the
have the generator going....
