The team has taken down most antennas and have a couple stations and a couple antennas still up. The work was much harder than expected as a storm surge came into the Nullabor – where the flooded antennas were located.

The penguins wondered why these humans were trying to act like penguins . . .

    Well the on-site team is to be congratulated for a great DXpedition and effort and making over 75 K of QSOs in conditions where the propagation gods and WX did all they could to fight them. Marvelous effort by all. Propagation was just not there for 10 meters but I did manage three new bands and one new mode. Unfortunately missed RTTY but there’s always the next time!

    Congratulation on a superb operation in spite of the dismal conditions, and for giving out so many ATNOs. Well done!

    The penguins were having a ‘field day’ with all the humans around to provide them with non-stop entertainment 😊!

    Sad to see the operation winding down, but it was great fun monitoring the very successful VK0EK Mission almost continuously all the way from Cape Town. Like the penguins I can also only say: Good show!!!
