left Funaitees (15km south of Kuwait City) and headed to Kubbar Island. It was a clear day and the WX was great. We arrived to our destination at 6:45 UTC and we began to setup our station. By 7:00 UTC we signed 9K2HN/P for three hours.

The equipment we were using at that time were:

We made 425 QSOs in three hours. After that we made our way back to Funaitees. The sea was turbulent at that time, but we made it safely and I hope I can make it again this summer. And on my next trip there I'll concentrate on North America.
