IOTA DXpedition to Timoteo Domínguez Island - IOTA SA-057 - Colonia Department Group

The CW5F team, from left to right: Paco-CX3BV, Mario-CX4CR, Ghis-CX5DNT/ON5NT, Gustavo-CX2AM, Oscar-CX2FR (sitting), Wilson-CX2RU (standing), Marcelo (CX2RU's son) and Beto-CX3AN.

February 25
During the night of Feb 24/25, extreme high tide together with very strong winds from the SE resulted in the water being pushed back into the Rio de la Plata and onto the island. In very short time the water level on the island increased with 1.5m. The maximum height of the island is only about 2.5m about sea level. In the middle of the night we had to move all tents to a higher location. We lost all our antennas on the beach. Only a 2 element cubical quad for 15/10m a bit higher on the island survived. We made a last run on 10m on Feb 25. The last QSO was made at 13:33UTC. We ended up with 3122 QSOs. The forecast for the night to follow was the same so for safety reasons we decided to leave the island. We are all back in Montevideo. 
February 26
We have received the information today from the Rio de la Plata area that the winds and waves during the night of Feb 25/26 were even worse then the night before, so it looks like we made the good decision to leave the island one day earlier.
Planned dates of operation: Feb 21-26, 2014
This is a joint operation by members of the Centro Radio Aficionados Montevideo and the Uruguay DX Group.
The team: CX2AM-Gustavo, CX2FR-Oscar, CX2RU-Wilson, CX3AN-Beto, CX3BV-Paco, CX4CR-Mario, CX5DNT/ON5NT-Ghis and Marcelo, CX2RU's son.
