The OH10X operation finished

We finally made 8088 QSO’s. Had some sleep last night and started this morning to dismantle the stations and antennas. The latter was quite a problem as during Sunday we had temperatures above zero and the snow started to melt a little. In the evening it started to freeze again and we got snow as well. The result was that 80m antenna got a ice layer causing the center frequency to drop some 100 kHz. Further the guy wires and fiber poles were all covered with a layer of ice/snow. That made it difficult to collapse the fiber poles and we had to use hot water to get the ice off and get it into the carrying case.

Around noon we were ready to drive back to Tornio.
