Extra information (02-10-2011 9:00): At 6:50 UTC Patrick ON4HIL informs us that the Rockall activation had to be stopped and that the team had to leave the island due to coming bad weather conditions... They were active during the whole night on 40m. Many of us where happy to log a new IOTA in our log. Congrats to the whole Rockall team!
