Boston Harbor Islands (NA-148)
I'm fortunate to have a great DXpeditioning destination right in my back yard. The Boston Harbor Islands (IOTA NA-148) are only a ferry-ride away. Georges Island has a Civil War era fort, beaches, and a great view of the city of Boston.
There is no power available on the islands and visitors who ride the ferry are limited to what they can carry. I have operated from Georges Island and Lovells Island several times over the last few years including activations for the RSGB IOTA contest. Here is a Google Earth pushpin for my campsite on Lovells; NE1RD-NA148.
I use the call sign NE1RD/1 when operating from these islands.
