From Ytre Sula we departed to Utvaer with the new Ferry. This is an ambulance boat which went very fast to Utvaer, where met our host Torvald who is very friendly.
Unfortunately the ferry boat cannot come close to the schoolhouse where we stay. So we have to unload all our stuff and leave it in a barn for the night. We took our personal gear and carried it for about 600 metres over the rocks. Torvald told us
we could use his generator so we decided to pick up the FT2000 and dipole antenne
to set up the first part of the HF station.

We are very happy with our accomodation, there can stay up to 10 people here so we have plenty of space. We have a nice wood burner in the main hall. We have a gas refridgerator, gas cooking and a wood burner to keep us warm. The main drinking water supply is rain water from the roof which we gave to cook first.
