OCTOBER 22 – One of our team could not land due to weather conditions and his flight had to return back. He is now waiting to depart from the mainland later. Weather is extremely bad here. We are running short of man power, but locals are very helpful.

There will be more CW from today, also FT8 on F/H mode. There is absolutely no internet coverage where we stay or on mobile network!
