During our stay in Vanuatu we are planning operation from Emae Island, OC-111, Shepherd Islands group, as well. Only a one-day operation can be expected.
We arrived to Vanuatu on Monday late afternoon, early evening. We started to set up the station in Thuesday morning. It took couple of hours to set up the station and test everything, but when we finished it, there was mains blackout for a couple hours. We are running one station with 400 watts
Yesterday we had to fix the antenna coupler. It was not possible to tune the antenna on the 80 m band. We checked the coupler and we could see that the screw on the 16/81 m antenna port got loose and the relay demaged.
When we fixed the antenna coupler we could tune the antenna for 80 meters, as well, without any trouble. The faulty rellay caused significant delay working on 80 meters. Yesterday morning it was working well.
Please be informed, that we went QRT after 12 days of operation on 14 November 2010 at 01:12 UTC (12:12 local time). We made 14 181 QSOs, excluding dupes, from 119 DXCC entities. You can see more detailed statistical figures on the log search page. The complete log are on-line and it has also been uploaded to the LotW.

YJ0HA – Vanuatu, 2010 november 1-14, (HA5AO, HA5UK)
A közös rádiós expedíció gondolatát HA5AO vetette fel, a helyszínt illetően régi vágyam, a Dél-Csendes-óceán lett megcélozva.
