George M1GEO, Chris G8OCV, Dave M0YOL and Spencer M0STO set up on Friday evening, in order to start the CQWW SSB WPX contest on time. Other members were to follow on Saturday morning.
During setup, George M1GEO managed to get his car stuck in the mud, and Dave M0YOL attempted to tow him out, resulting in both vehicles becoming stuck in the deep mud. Some photos of the incident below.
We ended up setting the 20 metre beam up in the dark:

Dave M0YOL and George M1GEO decided to do a bit of operating with a portable style setup. We were doing some maintenance for the installation of GB7KH repeater and decided to connect up the IC7100 and put some calls in the log!
