Saturday 29:th of March -- Sunday 30:th or March CQ WPX Contest SSB
Good conditions for radio contest.
But to run a 48 hour contest on 3 operators is a challenge.
SA2YLM/Maria did combine her radio operating skills with the kitchen skills during this weekend.
In total the team managed to get 1316 QSO:s in the log.

Monday 31:th of March
Monday morning... Even harder than a normal Monday morning. Running the contest into early morning causes a tired body.
Cleaning of SI9AM was on the schedule. Upload of logs. Soon it's time to start the long way home.
Everything has worked over expectations and 100% of the time.
We are now looking forward to the next visit at SI9AM.
