Late Friday evening SM3CER/Janne, SM3FJF/Jörgen and SM5SIC/Göran came to SI9AM.
During the first hours they realized the rotor for the beams didn´t work. They decided to start early on Saturday morning with the troubleshooting process.
The connection of the computers for the contest network worked perfectly. SM3FJF/Jörgen also mounted an additional radio station and a power amplifier.
At 05:00 UTC SM5SIC/Göran and SM3FJF/Jörgen started the troubleshooting. After several our of troubleshooting the saw that he cables which should be used for the rotor to the beam had been used for the rotor to the Spiderbeam. No wonder that it did not work! Shortly before the contest everything worked again. During the morning SM3EAE/Lasse joined the contest team.
At 12:00 UTC there was four happy hams, who had have a very fun SAC contest weekend together.
