It looks sooo nice where your at. Yet I didn't see any HF antenna'*. No hams where your at? Would think you would have at least one.

If you can, try to get pics of the northern lights. Those are sooo cool.

Oh my Gregg! What an experience! You are where very few people have ever gone.
I guess it'* safe to say you didn't dip your foot into this ocean like we did in the Pacific .
Ice fishing with not protection from the wind?
Is that the brightest that it gets now? Aren't you in the winter mode now where the sun never rises?
And where those clouds on the horizon of the ocean?

I loved the mock palm trees.

Did you see how dirty the trucks get..

That'* colder than it ever gets here.

2000 miles to Seattle, in comparison to the other mileage readings on that bill board doesn't seem that bad.

Thanks for the pics Cheetah. It was almost like being there........glad I'm not.
How much more time do you have to serve

I got to see the nothern lights for the first time last night, however I was a little to sloshed to get any pics I need to take the truck tonight and drive down the road so I can get away from the lights on the building.

There is a repeater here in the building that I got to work along with 4 Moto Astros. The radios just by thenselfs work good, but it should work even better now. There is no ham repeater here in Barrow, I forget where the closest one is

I think those were cluods.
