Report from Faraday cage

Why we cannot hear as many of you as we wished? The answer is simple:

The only hotel who agreed to our antenna instalation was Pousada de Coloane. The problem is that we are encircled by close mountains to West, East and North. The mountain wall begins just a couple of meters behind our antennas and peaks to 172.5 m. So the angles of radiation are 40-60 degrees depending on direction. Any more questions?

We spend a lot of money on this trip and we are as frustrated as you. Only making CQs and not copying anything…
