E51MMM - NNN Update - 27 Nov

We worked CQWW CW as E51A, and had a successful finish with 5500+ QSOs and 6.4 meg. Very pleased with our reslts.

Wx has turned very bad. High winds - 60 mph+ plus gusts - driving rain and high surf. On Monday morning after the contest four of our antennas were knocked down, and today our two 60 ft. fiberglass masts holding our 80m and 160m antennas were snapped in two. We will attempt repairs to try and get back on 160. Pse don't expect any more 80m operation. We should be able to get back on 20, 15 and 10, but no WARC bands. We are safe, and that is good!!!

Plan is to QSY home on Saturday night flight back to LAX.

I will try to post some photos to the blog.

73, Geo...

It was great working you guys as E51A on 15 & 20 during the contest. When you get back to Florida George, I hope you will have much to say about your expedition. You are missing the hamfest this weekend. Do enjoy yourselves. 73 de Ted W3TB
