Views of our lovely QTH on Gola Island EU-121

With the heavy rain having abated today, there was an opportunity to wander about Gola Island. This presented a chance to get a couple of photos of our operation headquarters at Portacrin Cottage. As you can see, it's very close to the sea. If you look carefully enough at the top image, you will see the slightly forlorn Sota pole - the one we repaired this morning after overnight damage. It's holding up well despite continuous stormy winds.

The above photo was taken from the east, looking towards another island in the distance. There are quite a few smaller islands in this area which are uninhabited and might make for possible future locations for IOTA activity. Just saying! ;)
