Grand Cayman (ZF2AH)

Last night I decided to try the antenna tuner on the lower bands and I made a lot of QSOs. One of them was in CW on 30m with ZF2AH from Grad Cayman.
Grand Cayman is the largest of the three Cayman Islands at about 196 km2 and contains the capital George Town. Towns on the island are referred to as "districts".
The island is a high-lying reef of "ironshore" (limestone fringes with numerous marine fossils), with a highest elevation of roughly 24 metres above sea level. There is no natural fresh water on the island, so any fresh water needs must be met by catchments or desalination of seawater. The lack of rivers does however account for the exceptional clarity of the sea.
