Operations at 9LY1JM. Picture by F1ULQ for DX-World readers.

NEWS UPDATE – All is well – we had some problems with antennas the first night; the tide was higher than expected and antennas finished submerged. The pile up is going well and the band noise is low. However, we had reception problems on 17m this morning and heard almost no-one while the pile up was there. 160 was great last night, tonight reception very difficult. In FT8 we are in Fox / Hound mode, we do not decode everyone. Internet is limited, we do the best. If all goes well we will load the logs twice a day. Weather: temperature 30°C, hot and humid. For the moment not too many mosquitoes. [tnx F1ULQ]
