Hard weather at Market Reef!
Yesterday evening the weather got worse on Market Reef, we now have winds hauling around 20m/s average and occasional “horizontal”
showers. Verticals are bent like bananas in the wind but we keep delivering to the Deserving! We have two stations on the air most of the time and propagation today is excellent on the high bands, right now we are battling the JA wall on both 21 and 24 MHz. Also nice to get a few ZL stations though! Hopefully we will get nice high-band propagation into North-America later in the afternoon today!
Our plan is to leave on Thursday, but with the present winds and weather we are not sure if we will be able to. At least we stay warm inside the lighthouse firing up the old trusty ovens in each room.
Walking outside is not very pleasant as wind gusts almost nocks you over.
Market Reef is not the place to be during fall storms but we do what we have to, to give out this semi-rare one to all of you guys!
Since we did not manage to get to Market Reef on our first try because of bad weather last week we have more than doubled our transport costs, we would most kindly accept any donations to cover this and also help out with future activities from this small rock!
