5J0P – San Andres Island


    Another day behind us, almost every day we are fixing antennas because of the very strong wind, which is also causing a lot of salt buildup on all the antenna elements. All weekend long we struggled with a lot of interference which made it practically impossible to make contacts. This past night we had 4 stations active on the low bands (160/80/40/30) virtually right up to sunrise.

    As you probably noticed, we had some problems with our on-line log. We didn’t expect so much interest, thousands of hams are watching the on-line log and every viewer is a new persistent connection with the server. That number quickly exceeded the limit for a single server. It turns out that it was necessary to install 7 additional virtual servers. We hope that Murphy’s Law will stop tormenting us.

    We ask you not to repeat QSO’s, let’s give the weaker stations a chance. The band conditions seem to be getting better and better, we invite everyone to make a QSO.
