Minor storm

Minor stormToday a minor thunderstorm came over and damaged 2 of our HEX beams. 1 HEX beam could be fixed and the other home made HEX beam was definitively damaged. We tried to hold the HEX with 2 persons but the guy-wire broke and came down on the ground. The 160 & 80 m vertical managed to stay up in the air. Some wires had to be tightened again. Last night Theo, ON4ATW managed to work KV4FZ after sunrise on 160m. The K9AY loop we put up yesterday did a great job. Logs keep on updated daily. Thanks to all operators to be patient in the pileup.We have 38k QSO’s in the log. We managed to work about 30 US stations LP on 30M.
