    glaval....you are right-on-target re: Lisa's knowledge of Aruba. She is an amazing authority on many subjects regarding the Island; customs, and people. I, like many, am a admirer of her and her comments over a long time. Thanks, Lisa for all your posts.

    We took them with us about 5 years ago but the reception was not the greatest ....depending on where we were depended on how much interference we got....ended up just shutting them off.....But maybe the new ones are better ??????

    Some Handheld Ham Radios are supposed to bounce off of satellites to extend their range for hundreds of miles. You need a license to operate(not own) one in the US but perhaps you don't in Aruba? I haven't found anything that indicated that you need any sort of license for radios in Aruba.

    What's App is another great texting app
