LY2AAM 6m-contest/4m-activity+WFF LYFF-002 KO23EX

Sorry that I could not do it before, but now I try to let you know some other details concerning our expedition.
We left Saaremaa and went to Kurtuvenanai at Friday. Cause it was quite late and stormy we decided not to erect any antennas to activate LYFF-015. At Saturday we met LY2BAW and had a nice lunch with him. Tnx for the beer and the high-percentage mead.Tadas told us that a violent storm was crossing southern Lithuania the night before. We saw many broken trees and some areas had no electricity for a long time. The lunch took some time and we went to KO23 in the afternoon. Our local guides where not available because of the storm we'd to find our QTH in KO23EX ourselves. That took a little time, but we found a very nice QTH with a good take-off to all directions. It was hot and building up the antennas and prepairing the QTH was hard work. My PA had some trouble with the generator, but finally we did it. The IARU-6m-Contest started at 14UT but we could not join before 18UT. So we lost the 1st opening but made more than 700 QSOs in the remaining 20 hours.
I hope that the score will last for a good result. On Sunday DL5CW made an LYFF-002 activation and DG1BHA activated LY2AAM also on 4mtrs. After 24 hours in the wilderness we went to the Druskiniankai campsite. Wow-after a long shower life came back!
