The very last decision is to eneter M/S low-power category in CQWW SSB contest with IO9Y call sign with some wire antennas for low-bands and few survived antennas from hurricane for the higher bands.
Such a big effort destroyed in a night. A year of investment in energy, planning, strategy and money. 10 full days of hard work in a true team spirit. Everything ruined in a night!

On Thursday night strong winds caused by Gonzalo hurricane destroyed almost all antennas at IO9Y M/M Lampedusa Contest Team station. There will be only sporadic operation from IG9/HOMECALL stations in low-power category during CQWW SSB contest. All transportations from the Island are canceled because bad weather and team will return home when ferries start to run. 73 Dan, S50U
