A Rough Night -> Standby for Uploads – Weather: 1, Operation: 0 June 28, 2018 June 28, 2018 kc1cwf

Weather:1 – Baker Island Dxpedition: 0

We did get 3 stations up and running last night,  one day ahead of schedule.

They say it never rains on Baker.  At midnight giant squalls came through knocking out one of our 3 antennas that we worked so hard to get up. We worked through the morning and have 6 stations available for the scheduled startup tonight at 05:00 UTC.

Tomorrow before it gets too hot we will erect 2 more antennas making 8 stations available as the bands allow.
The team is exhausted but excited about settling in and making QSOs around the globe. We are experiencing minor IT problems, and as such have not uploaded to ClubLog. We do plan on making our initial upload via BGAN satellite soon, however at this time, we do not have an exact time.
