QRX during storms

by / Wednesday, 06 April 2016 / Published in Uncategorized

There was no 160m activity last night because the 26m high vertical was de-tuned. As we explained before we got high gust of wind yesterday and the wires of the capacitive hat moved and seams to be not at the right place. The wind dropped down a bit and we’ll try to fix that today. We made many QRX yesterday during the storms to fix several problems on the camp and protect our 3 generators. By chance, nothing has been damaged !

Right now @05:00z wind is still blowing but not at the same level. The tide has been very high yesterday and last night, with waves coming 20m closer than usual. This is positive for the VDA !

80m was very noisy but we ran on that band a part of the night. Last night, when we changed the operators, there was a lot of lightnings all around the island. Still massive clouds in front of us this morning.

Time to start operating for the fresh operators. See you on the bands !
