4th Day in MJ…. May 8th, 2017

After a relatively short night we started off at 8AM with a nice breakfast in the hotel. It looked like a beautiful day but the wind (always present) made it feel a lot colder as we thought from the inside. On our way to the station another stop at the supermarket to ensure we would have lunch and dinner for the next two days. Tomorrow the shops are closed due to Liberation Day. Although it was not that easy we managed to obtain al we needed for the next few days 🙂

At the station Alex PA1AW had a close lo0ok whether he could repair the 6m yagi so we could as 6m to the operating bands. It was not easy but thanks to a heavry soldering iron a new cable was connected to the antenna and after a few hours the first CQ could go out on a closed band. Day 1 on 6 meters brought 7 qso’s with 3 F-station just on the mainland. A good start I hope.

 

The other operaters started of on the bands and they were in reasonable shape today. Despite the weekend was over the runs were still there and made Q’s made it in the log.

In teh afternoon some of the oprators took a little break for sightseeing the neigherhood. As you can see on the pictures, Jersey has very nice nature and beaches to offer too  🙂

At the end of day approx. 8000 Qso’s are in the log. More details will follow.

      We will try today to focus a bit on rtty on both 17 and 80. The latter might be difficult due to antenna issues 🙂 Thanks for calling us. 73 Alex PA1AW on behalf of the team.
