2016-03-27 07:42:40Z: Today the ops are settling in to the rotation and we have four stations running. The SSB operations are on the WARC bands to avoid the CQ WPX SSB contest. We will resume SSB operations on the other bands after the contest ends at 2359z.
This morning we’ve had a storm moving through, with winds at 25 kts gusting to 50 kts and light to moderate rain. Temperatures are around 5 C (41 F). Our tents and tent stakes are holding, and the antennas are still up. Inside we’re far warmer and drier than outside, and with a mug of hot chocolate things are pretty good.
