First impressions at the arrival

In the background at the beach you see, what will be the location of the SSB-operation.. On the right you observe the light-tower occupied later by our VHF-operators.

Shortly after arriving, we installed our CW-station and a vertical antenna right hand of the 2 towers you see. We installed ourselves on a cliff, about 25 ft (10 m) above the water.
