Sunday 2nd February 2014
After lunch today I went down to the trade's workshop and finished the head of my ice axe. I had to silver solder a threaded rod onto the head which screws into the handle. After this I went over to the chippies workshop and painted the handle with a wood sealer. Later after a long walk I went down to the transmitter building and made a few contacts with my radio, but conditions were not so good once again. After a toasted sandwich for dinner I watched coast and a then Jose put on a movie. I couldn't get to sleep, so around 11pm I went down to the shack for a couple of hours. Conditions were really good and I made dozens of contacts into Europe.
