From 4 March 2009 to 10 March 2009, John, W3MF, and Bob, K3PH, took a "radio vacation" to Bermuda.  While our primary purpose was to operate during a ham radio contest (the 2009 ARRL International DX SSB Contest), we did manage to wander around Hamilton city, as well as visit the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI), the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum, and Zoo (BAMZ), and Crystal Cave.  The following pictures "tell the tale" of the ham radio portion of the trip and our visit to the BAMZ.  For some reason, the pictures at Crystal Cave didn't come out all that well.  And, we simply forgot to take pictures at BUEI.  Probably has something to do with Bob's photographic skill...
