February 16 - Update

Spiderbeam will be dismantled today. During the last night to February 17th they will be QRV on 80/40/30m bands. Tomorrow they are flying home.

Below video from the rooftop of 9N7AM QTH.

February 12 - Update

Vertical is up, but something isn't working as expected. Tomorrow will try to improve it.

There is little space for antennas. Spiderbeam was put on the roof. On one side there is cliff, on the other side private properties without possibility to negotiate placement of any antennas.

On 80 and 160m bands very high noise (S9+).

Return home will happen as originally planned on February 16th. So unfortunately time on the air is much shorter than planned due to unexpected initial delays. More "adventures" than ever this time.

Internet connectivity is bad, and logs will be uploaded after return home.

February 11 - 9N7AM QRV

9N7AM is finally on the air. Today they managed to install Spiderbeam and EFHW-8010 wire antenna. Tomorrow will install vertical for low-bands.

Return plans are not clear yet, as they have issues with tickets.

Few more photos added to Photos section.

February 9 - More delays

Yuris says they are stuck in Abu Dhabi, hope to be in Nepal in February 10 afternoon. Not clear when could be on the air.

February 6 - Start delayed

Due to unforseen circumstances they will be on the air from February 9.
