    Information from QRZ page:
    W1DED, Kevin Thomas, operating J8NKI under a temporary license issued by the National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission in Kingstown St. Vincent. Station was originally located in our hotel room in Canouan but I was unable to successfully deploy my antenna. So, I borrowed a golf cart + car battery and headed to the island's old abandoned casino (with permissions) at 302' elevation and a relatively open shot to the US (330deg) and Europe (45 deg). I'm using a Buddipole with extra arms and their 9.5' whips on a 18' mast connected to a Kenwood TS480HX and an LDG auto tuner. I've only been able to setup during the day thus far with limited success on 20 meters. We still have a few days remaining for this trip and another 11 months on the temporary license so there may be a return trip in the future.
