Hi all. This is our first blog from our trip to Ramsey Island 2012. A short extract from the main blog of the StrumbleHead Contest and DX Group written by Chris G1VDP.
2 days in to the trip and we are having fun on all bands. Just a pity that conditions are not too good, although we are working plenty of Europeans. Up to now we have made almost 1300 contacts. Logs have been sent to Tim (M0URX) for uploading to his OQRS and on line log search. These will be available from mid afternoon when he gets home from work.
What else have we been up to? Thursday was fun trying to get the antennas up in the air. It was blowing a gale and raining – the worst weather conditions we have encountered on any of our activations – causing us all to get soaked to the skin. But our spirits were kept high with constant warm drinks supplied by Jane and Laura (Ant’s wife who is also with us this year) when we were down in the dumps. Murphy also visited us 3 times, and once with one of our members on Friday who is not here with us, sorry Tim from all the guys here.
