PJ7    - The PJ7E team on Sint Maarten is having problems.  "Tropical  storm

         massive  flooding",  W8GEX  reported  on  7  October.  "Our   radio
         equipment has not arrived yet. The cargo manager said he  can  only
         take 3-5 ft. waves for the ship to dock safely  and  when  we  were
         there this morning, the waves were about 15 ft. It could be  a  few
         days before the vessel can dock. At this point,  we  have  no  idea
         when we have the full setup on the air but will keep DXers  updated
         on Facebook and Twitter. Parts of the island are without power  and
         most stores and  restaurants  are  closed.  K4SV  does  have  a  CW
         station set up. The SSB site has nothing on the air yet but we  are
         working to get that done in the next day or so".
