Sum up

So, home and first week of work after vacation finished.

We had a great weekend even if propagation really was crap on Saturday and Sunday. We had less than 5 qsos outside of Europe from Saturday morning until Sunday lunch.

In total we had about 1350 qsos, breakdown shows main part on 30m (550) and on 20m (543). Ronny also worked a bunch on 6m. That was a first
Timer for us from the island. Rest of contacts were made on 40 and 17. Only 5 contacts on 80m where we normally have around 400.

Will post more pictures later on this weekend.

The Island

You can see the island at the horizon 

Preparing to board

Arrived at the harbor and waiting for the boat to take us to the island. Perfect weather but just a bit windy. 
As usual way to much stuff with us.
But you need to be prepared. You never Know what happens.
