We at Radio St. Helena are also VERY SAD to have to announce the cancellation of
RSD 2010. The problems with the tower holding the 3-element Yagi antenna are
such that we simply had no choice. There is no chance to fix the tower in the
next six weeks, but RSH is quite confident that we will be able to broadcast a
RSD 2011 program next year. At the moment, I am investigating the possibility of
setting up a wire antenna as a temporary measure, but I am not at all sure
whether we will be able to do that. The technical resources on the VERY REMOTE
island of St. Helena are not so good. If anything needs to be ordered from
England, then it takes a lot of time and effort.

(Robert Kipp via Yimber Gaviria via playdx2003 ml via Roberto Scaglione, Sept 11,
shortwave yg via DXLD)
========================

So, still a REMOTE possibility that Robert will be able to set up at least a wire
antenna.

Stay tuned...
