operated CW on 10 metres,  and did not expect to make  “more than a few hun-
dred QSOs”.

up the sheer-sided granite rock  was  much more hazardous  than expected be-
cause  the waves were  far bigger  than anticipated”.  When Emil,  who is an
expert mountaineer,  tried to land on the rock  to fix the lines needed  for
the others to follow,  “the swell was so great that he was twice washed into
the sea  before he was able  to clamber on  at the third attempt”.  QSL  via
