Re: T-Storms - Valentine Sprint

Can you actually work 160m from the attic? Must be a VEERY big attic!

Other than the low band 070 contests when I use the jury-rig Inv L, here in FL I rely on attic dipoles 40m and up.

See you in the Sprint!

Things are a lot whiter up this way. More fresh powder dropped last night.
This is when I'm glad the antenna is in the attic instead of outside. The
performance isn't as good, but the operation is more consistent. :-)

We're expecting an ice storm here in southern Maryland. Antenna looks good
so far. Brushed the snow off the solar panel but it has a light coat of ice
on it. Hope I don't have to go to mains power. And I hope mains power stays
on. Generator in the campervan is working. Looking forward to the Sprint.

Same up here Stan. First one came through here last evening with lightning,
thunder, and heavy rain...two more so far this morning. My antenna is
disconnected so no Valentine Sprint for me this year! Maybe next year. OT -
it is also Daytona 500 weekend. So that explains T-storms in central
