The ultimate ham radio vacation rental

Prince Edward Island, in Eastern Canada, is a popular vacation destination for New Englanders. Just about 11 hours by car from Boston, it’s within easy range and offers immense beauty and a special kind of charm.

I’ve been going there since I was a child and have many great memories. The red sand beaches are unforgettable and despite it’s northern location, the ocean water is the warmest on the east coast north of the Carolinas.

Well, needless to say as I was browsing vacation accommodations, this place caught my attention! Purchased in 2002 by California attorney Ken Widelitz, K6LA / VY2TT, the ham radio shack at the 4-bedroom, 3,000 square foot PEI DX Lodge features some amazing amenities including an Elecraft K3, ICOM 7800, and ICOM IC-756 PRO III.

Oh, and did you notice the antenna farm?  There are five towers: 30 feet, 84 feet, 140 feet, 145 feet and 150 feet.

They’re all yours for the duration of your stay. Amazing!

If you’re interested, check out the reservations page for rental rates or contact Ken at [email protected].
