RZ3EM) had to change their plans and to cancel the TF7RRC operation from  the
Westman Islands (EU-071).  However, they were  active as  TF4RRC from  Flatey

reports that the  operators left on  the island  for the  remaining days  are
VU2NKS, VU3IZO, VU3RGP, VU3RSB,  VU2PJP and VU2RCR.  In spite of  propagation
not being at its best, several  solar flares and multiple power outages,  the
team has logged  almost 50,000  QSOs so  far. "The  transfer of  logs to  the
mainland for updating the webpage has  been a problem  but VU2ZAP and  VU2SJD
have been working very  hard to sort  out the many  errors and partials  that
have been brought to our notice and updating the online logs. VU2ZAP has also
been diligently answering all mail regarding  errors and we expect that  most
of the issues will be sorted out completely". On-line logs current cover  the
period 1-21 December, the next update is expected on 24 December.
