Equipment used.

What kept us awake all night was a coffe maker from Elektrolux EKF7000.

By the way, the radios we used was all from ICOM, IC-7400, IC7000 and IC 706MKII.
Antennas: Cuschcraft R7, Dipol 80m, half- square 40m/20m, and loops and a lot of antenna experiments with fishing rods :)
Vertical dipol for 10m, and a vertical for 2m... I think thats all.
The R7 does a good job and has been with us from the beginning in 2007.
We are all looking forward to the next Lighthouse weekend, keep an eye on our blog, we will continue to update it through the year. We will put some nice pictures of QSL card recieved.
Well, folks, see you soon and thanks for visiting SK7L blog site.
/SM7TVZ and the rest of the team.
