Almost every location shown was windy, some highly. I'm impressed. Not one aerial fell down. At around 9:00, the antennas start coming down; on purpose and controlled. June must be very blustery on the island.
Very nice, thank you!
There was 'class' about the radio amateurs of yesteryear.
Coats and ties, and not a 'slob' in sight.
Take a peek @ 6:31 - surprise, surprise!
Guess what antenna he used...
And at about 6:50 an eyeball QSO with M0O:
That was interesting. For one thing, it didn't rain but did seem very windy. Add to that the suits and ties, and I bet a good time was had by all. I have to admit, those were the most well dressed hams I have ever seen.
Lots of interesting homebrew and A-frame push-up masts. One of the calls was G5RV...

Not a microphone in sight!
