Nov 27, 2012, Natal

The PT0S team has landed in Natal the afternoon of Nov 26, after a 3 day long sea voyage on the not-too-comfortable fishing vessel Transmar II. Everybody is safe and well. We are now catching up on food and sleep. Lots of sleep.

The logs of the last 20 hours of operation were uploaded. Please note that these logs do not contain corrections. (Please also note that it may take several days for LoTW to post the uploaded QSO-s). We will deal with the correction requests during the next two weeks and upload a final and corrected log around Dec 10. (Probably not so final, as correction requests are likely to be coming in for a while.)

We terminated the operation at 10:17 UTC (MM0GPZ was the last QSO), rather abruptly. The Brazilian Navy has requested that we vacate the space we were occupying as they were landing a large number of people for a major upgrade project and simply there was no room for us, either within the facility or outside. Once the decision was made to go QRT, we had to move very quickly to dismantle the station and clean up the site, as the boat had to leave before 2 PM (local time) to arrive in Natal in daylight.

A summary of the operation will be posted here in a few days' time.
