Team 3B8EME arrived this morning, May 14th at
Mauritius after two long flights without any sleep.
All equipment and luggage came with us. Customs seemed to cause some
problems but we managed in our best French to convince the
authorities that we have peaceful plans. We tried to explain the
reason of our visit but this caused only that the whole staff began
to ponder about those three lunatic Dutchmen
Next problem was that we had no license. With help of Jacky 3B8CF
all was solved within no time so we have the special call 3B8EME as
was promised before.
In the afternoon we began to build up the station in the steamy heat
with high humidity. We worked s l o w . However we still need a few
hours tomorrow in order to be sure all systems go without any threat
that LNAs will explode spontaneously.
So, everything is OK. Only one problem might occur. We already
experienced the benefits of this paradise. White beaches, nice cold
beers and beautiful brown eyed creatures with long legs. However we
have to do our job for the EME community. A difficult struggle
