Nevis Island

Nevis is situated at 17°10'North and 62@deg34'West North of the Antilles.

Columbus discovered this island in 1493 and saw the highest mountain Nevis Peak in clouds. Since he thought he saw a snow covered peak he named the island "Nuestro Senora de las Nieves". Its neighboring island St. Kitts was the first island of the Antilles settled by the English in 1623, Nevis was settled in 1628. After belonging to France and England again and again the Republic of St. Christopher and Nevis became independent in 1983. Since the name is very long it's mainly called St. Kitts and Nevis.

Amateur radio: Prefix V4, DXCC entity St.Christopher and Nevis, WAZ zone 8, ITU zone 11, UTC -4 hours. This DXCC is being visited by Hams frequently.
