Press Release 5 : Mar 18 , 2011
VU4PB has now been operational for 3 days. The unusually bad weather has been challenging. Having to frequently check if your antennas have not been blown away by the storm force winds tends to slow things down!. Band conditions have not been ideal either with a lot of QRN.
However this morning the weather seems much better so the pending low band antennas will be put up. Listen for us on 80M and 160M tonight.
The Online Logs have been posted on the site for the period upto 17 Mar 0800Z.
We request operators who have confirmed QSO's in the log to not try again on the same band so as to allow others to have a shot.
A few members of the initial team leave today and we await additional operators on the 21st.
