VP8STI SOUTH SANDWICH ISLAND DXPEDITION NEWS (Update)
Past night two tents and most of the yagis were destroyed by high winds. Both of their main tents collapsed partially and the team worked very hard through the night to save them. The Braveheart recorded winds of 70 mph (112 Kph). They are running only on 40 meters due antenna damage. Once they can assess damage they can determine whether they can proceed to South Georgia or not. Right now they are doing last QSO as VP8STI due they have asked the Braveheart to extract them when itīs possible. They regret that they have fallen short of their plans , however the team and crew safety is most important.
