FEBRUARY 16 – Video above is taken from the rooftop of hotel where the ops stayed. On Feb 17th they QRT.

FEBRUARY 12 – Vertical is up, but something isn’t working as expected. Tomorrow will try to improve it.

There is little space for antennas. Spiderbeam was put on the roof. On one side there is cliff, on the other side private properties without possibility to negotiate placement of any antennas.

On 80 and 160m bands very high noise (S9+).

Return home will happen as originally planned on February 16th. So unfortunately time on the air is much shorter than planned due to unexpected initial delays. More “adventures” than ever this time.

Internet connectivity is bad, and logs will be uploaded after return home.

FEBRUARY 2, 2020 — Yuris, YL2GM & Eugene, EA5EL will be active from Nepal during 6 – 16 February 2020 as 9N7AM. QRV on 160 – 10m, CW, SSB, RTTY, FT8. QSL via YL2GM. More info here
