QRT – We did it! What an exciting expedition that we will not forget. We had a lot of fun and we hope you did too. Setting up camp in the Arctic is not an easy task and the changing weather reminded us of this on several occasions. We had to put a lot of effort into maintaining the antennae and a large female polar bear with her cub visited us from far away. We will return with more details about the contacts and our impressions. Thanks for the pile up. 

JULY 20 @ 0800z – The JW0W team is now leaving Oslo for Longyearbyen. All luggage is loaded and they are ready to go. They are checking weather for the boat for tomorrow. It looks not too bad at the moment. Next news from Svalbard.
