The Kwajalein Atoll is situated at 167°43'East and 8°43'North in the Pacific Ocean, approximately 3400km Southwest of Hawaii and 2250km East of Guam. Kwajalein geographically belongs to the Ralik Chain (aka Sunset Islands) and thus is part of the Marshall Islands. The Kwajalein Archipelago covers an area of about 1.300 sqkm and is the biggest archipelago in the Pacific Ocean consisting of 90 islands. The climate is tropical averaging at 26° Celsius.
The Marshall Islands were under German authority from 1884 till 1918. The headquarter was on Jaluit the main island. After World War II the Americans built up a large base on it. Nowadays there are several thousand American soldiers working at world's largest radar site or with the missile defense. Even the majority of the native inhabitants are working for US government.
Economically the Marshalls are not that important. They are fishing, selling kopra or stamps. The USA are supporting them tremendously with development aid and compensations for the nuclear testing site on the neighbouring archipelagos Bikini and Eniwetok. They have almost no tourism though the Kwajalein archipelago belongs to the most beautiful diving sites in the world.
