Day 2
 

A long day of hard work have passed.
While building up the antenna system on the tower we nearly lost the complete array due to high wind and lack of the right materials on the island.
While installing the last 2 yagi’s the other 2 came down and a boom landed on Jurgen.
A crossplate broke and it had to be fixed by a local welder.
While it was getting dark he climed into the tower to fix the problem.
See pictures and a small movie on www.emelogger.com/bonaire

Now we have some delay on our schedule.
Tomorrow we start building again at sunrise and we try to be qrv as soon as possible, we need a few hours more.

But we still enjoy the stay on the island (no we did not see much of it so far)
