VP8STI News 25 January 2016

Past night two tents and most of the yagis were destroyed by high winds. Both of their main tents collapsed partially and the team worked very hard through the night to save them.
The Braveheart recorded winds of 70 mph (112 Kph). They are running only on 40 meters due antenna damage.
Once they can assess damage they can determine whether they can proceed to South Georgia or not.
Right now they are doing last QSO as VP8STI due they have asked the Braveheart to extrac them when it´s possible.
They regret that they have fallen short of their plans , however the team and crew safety is most important.

Conditions on 20 have been strange, with Liam EI7DSB commenting that sometimes the band appears to be shutting down but then comes alive again, and some stations are affected by deep QSB. 30m has been flying, with several contacts into Japan. I had an hour or so on 40cw, and it was hopping. I had to run split because there was a good pile-up. [more…]
