I visited Vanuatu last month on vacation and was able to obtain an amateur radio licence with a callsign 'YJ0ACF.' My licence was dated August 18, 1999. Licencing information on your internet site was very helpful during the preparation. I would like to thank you very much for this.
Following information might be useful for those amateurs considering operations in Vanuatu in the future: Name of the Managing Director, Telecom Vanuatu Ltd. Daniel FERMINE

I stayed three nights at Aore Resort, Aore Island, about 3 km south from Luganville,
Espiritu Santo Island. Its URL is ' www.aore.net .'
Though I had to take a domestic flight by a small plane to get there, the bungalow
assigned to me (#16) seemed to have ideal conditions for radio. It is close to a beach to
the north and has ample space to the west.
I made about 500 QSO's, of which roughly half were EU's. QSL route is via JA1JCF, via bureau or direct.
Name and Address:
Nakano-ku, Tokyo 165-0022
I hope your internet pages will be supported by many hams and will continue to provide
useful information to them. 73.
