Ham Friendly Hotel on Utila Island (IOTA NA-057).

The following provided by Rick, W7AV in June 2005

Hotel Name: Slumberland Villas  www.slumberlandutila.com
Comments: Located on the Island of Utila (NA-057), part of the Bay Islands which includes Roatan Island.  This is a much smaller island than Roatan, very low key and a lot cheaper.  Friendly people.  English is widely spoken.  Credit cards and travelers checks are NOT accepted at most places.   

Slumberland has 2 Villa's right on the water built in 2004.  Very ham friendly owners.  110v AC with standard US outlets. No 220v.  A lot of room for a station and antennas.  No trees for antennas but verticals can go right in the water or on the deck.  This info is compliments of KB7TX.

Note from Ray, WQ7R in April 2002:

I stayed in a rental house on the west end of the island. I think there are many other sites on the island. Most of the resorts seem to be interested in having amateur operations from their locations.

Licensing can be done very easy by completing the application on the conatel.com site. I contacted Dr. Mossi at Conatel and his help in getting a license was very helpful. Everything can be done by e-mail and there is no charge for the license.

While this is a website for the sale/rental of condos, there is a lot of useful information and maps to visitors of Roatan

Ham Friendly Hotel??? on Roatan Island (IOTA NA-057).

Used to be a Rent-A-QTH, but "TH6 IS DEAD AND BURRIED"  There is no longer any ham rental.
