../../basetitle>Honduras DX Photos
Most of these photos were taken when I lived in Honduras as a Peace Corps volunteer in 1982-1984. The exceptions are the Sani Radio photo and some of the HRVC photos, which were taken in a short visit to Tegucigalpa in 1990.
Photos taken during a visit to this station in 1983.
Road out to the radio station complex.
The town of San Luis.
I had an FRG-7 and a Radio West Ferrite loop to DX with. The top picture was my shack for my first six months in Santa Barbara when I lived at a house in town. The second picture was at a house in a village a few miles north that I lived in for a month. I made the table myself but paid to have the chairs made. In January 1983 I moved to the village of Galeras, just outside Santa Barbara. That's where I added the shelves. That was my DX shack for the next sixteen months when I moved to Comayagua and had to make another table. I never did take a picture of that shack but it looked similar.
These stations all used shortwave at sometime between 1970 to 2000.

Despite the station name and the name of the town, this was one of the most primitive radio stations I've visited anywhere!3344 x 2224 pixel version (0.8 MB)
