We lost power 2 hours before the contest due to an outside cable problem, and even still only two phases out of three coming to the station are operational. Thus the horse and cart never made it to the starting line, and we took off on foot instead... 

The situation limited station usability, but was very good for a test drive. In other words, limited possibilities to rotate antennas, no amplifiers (but we used the 200W from our Yaesus to compensate for our mishaps...), and even limited lighting in the shack. We didn't want to blow anything up, since it would have been a very cold and dark night on the island!

At any rate, it was a very useful exercise for debugging the setup, and we will be back on the air for more test drives in May. Thanks for all QSOs, wonderful activity as always!
