participate in regardless of the solar
cycle or other elements that improve
or effect you. Conditions seemed more
difficult than last year with a little
less propagation and more noise. I
had challenges running any band except
15M so mostly S&P this year. We had
a storm come through Sunday AM early
and I was off radio but it loosened my
tribander on the mast. With the winds
most of Sunday, it proved to be a
challenge to keep it pointed in the
direction you want it to be. No so
funny when you have a great run going
and stations beging to fall off in the
queue and someone tries to take your
frequency, only to find the antenna
pointing south for an original 30
degree heading. Multiple times on
Sunday I had to stop operating and go
out to loosen the my rotar (ground
level on rotating tower) and
reposition antenna. My coax up the
side of the tower looked like I was
was feeding a candy cane as it twisted
all the way up. Well this gives me
somethig to do when not
operating. Rig: Yaesu FT-1000MP MV
