Well, the party is over and we had a great time and we hope you did too.
You can see a few of the pictures here: http://aroadventures.org/page26.html
We had a few glitches but it all worked out. We ran two 910H's. One with
yagis and one with egg beaters plus a portable station. It was pretty cool
to see CW and FM worked simultaneously. We hope this sets a new standard
for satellite operations on DXpeditions. Mark will give you an update
By the way, we ran two satellite stations, two HF stations, inverter,
lighting and all acc. 24 hours a day all on green power for four days and
made over 8,000 contacts with only batteries and a wind turbine. The wind
turbine was making so much power that we never even took the 900 watts of
solar panels out of the case!
