Re: Showing Up In French Polynesia With an Old-ish Zarpe

Paul, no problemo, and thanks for looking out.

Mark, that's great news. Also I've had a WirieAP (using it now to write this reply) for years and it's a great piece of gear.

So it is OK to break Mexican immigration laws, but not OK to use incorrect VHF protocols?

Eric,

In our experience and observation, what people here are telling you is correct. In fact, at one time, people were leaving New Zealand without clearances--long story, won't go into it now--but, these same folks were welcomed normally in Noumea.
