come to an end by Friday 28 April, earlier than originally planned. Logs will
be available at http://www.yv0.info/ once the team gets back to Caracas, as
they were unable to upload the logs during the operation. There was no RTTY
activity, because the late Jose, YV5LIX was the one who was going to operate
on that mode and the rest of the team was not experienced enough. [TNX
