We are pleased to report that all of our equipment has arrived in the port of Tauranga, New Zealand. It has undergone fumigation and has now cleared Customs. Here is our gear as it just arrived. Followed are photos of our gear being trucked to the Braveheart’s warehouse for storage before the long voyage to the Falkland Islands.


Our gear has just been fumigated. No bugs allowed!


These crates hold our 80 meter four square array and phased verticals for 160 meters.


These plastic bins contain over 3000′ of LMR400 coax.


Our Pelican cases are wrapped in plastic wrap. IMG_0241
