No Internet on EU-011

Hopefully this might explain why if asked I will NOT be doing uploads during the contest, and I will not see anything on email, twitter, RBN etc... so don't try and ask me to look for you or beam to heading (no yagi anyway). I expect I will make use of the 4square ability to rotate where I can hear.

There IS NO INTERNET COVERAGE on the island. I have been advised I could TRY and tape a USB dongle on a 10m pole and tie that to a TV pole and hope it is not raining and you 'might' have internet but locals have tried and failed.  The Wifi mast is the wrong side of the fort outside Hugh Town with no direct line of site. I will be about 3.5km from the WiFi mask the different mobile phone companies use.
