This report describes repairs and upgrades made to the Port Stanley Magnetic Observatory during a visit to the Falkland Islands in September 2004. Damage caused by a lightning strike in March of this year stopped the automated magnetic data recordings up to the time of the visit. The work undertaken during the visit and documented in this report was sufficient to restart the recordings. Since the report is intended as a technical reference for observatory operation, the instruments, computing equipment, software and cabling have been described in detail.
