3Y0       - The weather  cooperated and  3Y0X was  able to  get the  remaining
            three team  members ashore  along with  the rest  of supplies  and
            gear. At 15 UTC on 11 February they finally had a full  complement
            of people, equipment and supplies. They have seven stations on the
            air with the eight being shared  between HF and  EME. As of  press
            time,  on-line  logs  http://www.peterone.com/p1log.html  are   up
            through 16 February at 16.10  UTC (68,865 QSOs).  In order not  to
            interfere with the  ARRL CW Contest,  3Y0X will only  work on  the
            WARC bands  on  SSB  and RTTY  during  the  weekend.  The  weather
            forecast does  not look  good  for early  next  week, and  if  the
            situation turns out  as expected, the  team may  be shutting  down
            operations on Sunday. QSL via N2OO.
