*HAM RENTAL* Radio Reef, US Virgin Islands

General Comments:

Located on a picturesque island in the Caribbean Sea, the largest island in the US Virgin Islands, Radio Reef is described as a house shack where you can play as much (or as little) radio as you like.  In fact, owners want the holidaying DXer to feel like it is his own personal ham station and a home away from home in the Caribbean during the time spent there.

Radio Reef is located on the north side of St. Croix.  Along with the radio shack and antenna farm, this awesome DX get-away includes a fully air-conditioned one bedroom apartment with all the amenities to ensure your stay for DX is a comfortable one indeed.  There is a king bed in the master bedroom, for example, a fully furnished living room/entertainment area and a kitchen with all new appliances.

The spacious veranda, furthermore, features a large hammock, comfortable rocking chairs, a bbq grill and dinette… all overlooking the beautiful, blue Caribbean.  No doubt also that this amazing view would provide excellent yagi take-offs to various continents too!

Free, cable television and high-speed, wireless internet is included too which means access to udeful online resources such as the various cluster sites.
