St. Kilda expedition is over. It was an excellent trip and an adventure. 12.000 QSOs were made from Monachs and St. Kilda and all operators are now back home. We were really lucky with the weather. The sea was calm during the trip. Night shifts were very tough with rain and cold throughout. Full story of the trip is available here. All operators are now back home without major injuries. Ramon had a bad fall on the last day and broke his arm, he is in the cast but is recovering fast. QSL cards have been designed and are now in the print.
