RARC Member Travels to Bhutan With U.S. Ham Group

Pat, NØADQ, was a member of a team of U.S. hams who travel to the small county of Bhutan at the end of October to participate in the inauguration of the Bhutan Amateur Radio Club and to participate in the CQ WW SSB contest. The group operated station A52A at the Bhutan ham radio center during the contest.

In addition to visiting Bhutan, Pat was able to spend some time in both Tokyo, Japan, and Bangkok, Thailand, during the trip.
