No. He isn’t playing “hide and seek” but merely protecting the equipments and himself from the nth daily downpour. It’s a continuous follow one another between good weather and downpour. This is also Brunei during these days: everything is unpredictable, as the propagation.

However, the log counter rached about 36 thusand QSOs and it is still going on, minute by minute.
