Many of us have been following UT1FG/MM as he sails from port
to port, operating on the birds and 6 meters. When Yuri left
port in Nicaragua a few days ago, he emailed the bad news that
his 12v power supply that runs his IC706 had failed and could
not be fixed.
This prompted an effort to find a way to replace that power supply
and insure continued operating as he sails up to Montreal Canada.
The solution was eventually found and thanks to the efforts of
Captain Manolis Joannou, HP1CQ, Yuri continues to operate.
An abbreviated version of the story of International good will and
extreme determination to succeed is now posted on my website. This
hobby is more than just operating and making contacts. For the rest
