Comment: Hi guys, I'm from Ohio, USA. I'm looking for an operator in St. Mary to be my contact for a Missions group down there. During hurricane season, they have trouble contacting us up here in the states so they eventually want to set up a A R station. Anybody have any info of a helpful volunteer to work with me until they are up and running? Thanks!

Comment: Hello! I enjoyed reading your club history. I noted that it mentioned that Cyril Lyons had the first official Jamaican license as VP5CM. I have a QSL card from Mr. Lyons from February 3, 1934, but his callsign was listed as VP5MK. I would be happy to send you an image of the card. 73's de Rick McMorran email W6ANF at ARRL dot NET
