Poor internet connection here from the room Folks. Will need to fix that issue in the next couple days once i have the other ops. Lack of connectivity is driving me crazy, but rather than spend time messing around, i have chosen that we
will stay on the air. We arrived and installed the Hex beam on 20th. That evening we worked through the night.
The next day(21st) was a day we had a planned public event, so had spent most of the day out. The night, we again
continued to operate. We are looking for 10/12m openings. I did work a few NA stations on 12m.
The charts show 00:00 to 0200 for LP on 12/10m
1200-1300 for LP and SP for 10/12m
The cargo boat has arrived late, so more antennae will go up in the next couple days.
We have not worked any JA's so far, since we have been busy during the day time.
Europe is getting a fair share of the QSO's , but we will continue to look for NA. We have a 2ele hex at 9-10m height
with a straight water shot to NW and the KPA500 with 500w.
The higher power amp will be here in a day or so. Please stay tuned and bear with us. The pile up has been incredible
and the signals from NA weak at times. I know folks are there, but at times, just not enough to pull them out.
We have some more time here, so hope to offer many many more Qs
Note: i am unable to even send any pictures due to the connectivity issue. I will need to leave the laptop outside
for the upload of the 3Meg picture files to happen or will need to spend time shrinking. Priorities at this time with
just the 2 of us on the ground is the installation and QSO's.
The 230k log file upload to clublogs had to be attempted like 10-20times until it will succeed.
I get downstream speed of less than 1Kbps at times and down to 0 times often
