come to an end by Friday 28 April, earlier than originally planned. Logs will
be available at http://www.yv0.info/ once the  team gets back to Caracas,  as
they were unable to upload the logs  during the operation. There was no  RTTY

on that  mode and  the rest  of the  team was  not experienced  enough.  [TNX
