First QSOs, one antenna is up

I was hoping to put some pictures here today because Vadim promised to send me some from the island. But alas, probably something has not worked as planned.

Anyway, one antenna is up already (20-15-10v vertical dipole) and 8q7dv is pretty loud here in UA9 on those 3 bands. Vadim is using Elecraft K3  transceiver and Acom 2000 linear. The antenna is set up in a salt water some 5 meters off the shore.

The plan for tomorrow is to set up 160-80-40m vertical. Then there will be more activity on the bands.
