K1024 121Well the guys on Lundy Island last weekend did a fabulous job and due to an unexpected deterioration with the weather, their stay was extended a little and which ultimately ended with them being airlifted by Helicopter back to the mainland (Photo above).

The team consisting of John, M5JON, Peter, M0ILT, Ant, MW0JZE (pictured above center) used a Elecraft K3 with a KPA500 amp, a Kenwood TS590s with a Expert 1K amp (400W) and a IC706 as a backup radio/3rd station. The antennas were 2 x G3TXQ Hexbeams (supplied and built by Ant, MW0JZE, the main sponsor of the activation) and a 1/4 wave vertical for 40m.

The guys logged 5100 Qso's in just over 4 days operating. Well done to all, great job and fb operation. (Qsl via MØURX OQRS).
