We had hassles from:

A couple of PCs over the two days
An amplifier
dodgy 40/80 vertical which caused much hassle for the more able antenna minded
members of 
the Team, as they got saddled with trying to fix it
My ATU - death by moisture due to the storm
Dodgy TX/RX relay on my MP - needs to be fixed ASAP!
Andrew's Icom got stroppy and refused to switch Trent's amplifier initially -
it cured itself!

LF was pretty much unusable during the contest. HF was more interesting and we
had a great run 
on 10m at the begining of the contest. It was as much as I could do to get the
calls into the log. 
Great fun.

15m also did much of the same - but sporadically.

20m was a little variable too, but often provided a great run.

40m was not usuable due to TVI problems.

80m was a non-starter for all manner of reasons, but antenna hassles didn't

160m was a re-tuned 80m antenna and was engulfed in storm static and local

All in all a part-time, band limited and un-assisted MS attempt for the VK4TI
Team. The score will 
easily be improved upon!
