IG9/S50O Lampedusa Is. AF-019

UPDATED 24-OCT-2014:
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!
