The preparations. Rain is expected, so every box is packed into plastic bags.

Monday afternoon, August 31. The puzzle, how do we get all the stuff into the three cars. Perhaps we need a fourth car, but we have only 7 drivers. We want to change during the night.

Puzzling, puzzling, puzzling........

It seems to fit. From the left to the right Michel PE1NVK, Gert PA0NZH, Aurelio PA3EZL, nearly invisible Jons PE1PRG and at the right Robert PA3FXW. Robert is helping us with packing. Three days later he will come for a long weekend with PA3HCW and YL.

On our way on the dutch highway. It's evening now and the shadows show we are driving south.

Early Tuesday morning. We are in Liechtenstein (FL) where there are no highway's!

Entering the capital city of Vaduz. In the mountains the royal castle is vissible. It's still very early and the sun is shielded by the mountains.

After a climb of about 1500 meters we reached our destination, the "Sessel bahn" from Malbun to Sareis. The cars cannot drive any further.

Take the weight of all the coax cables only and you can imagine we were carying a heavy load.
From left to right PA3EZL, PE1NVK, PE1OGF, PE1PRG, PA3GFE and PE1RTE. PA0NZH took the picture.

All equipment was transported up the mountain this way. Leo, an employee of the "Sessel bahn" was very friendly and helpfull.

Collecting the equipment.
