Storm

I am ready for the first autumn storm 'Christian' - my vertical is down, precaution. At midnight the storm will arrive in the UK, tomorrow morning The Netherlands. So I will see and wait for things to come.
Update: The storm is over. Wind gusts up to 119km/h at our location. We had no real problems here. One roof was destroyed and a tree was down, that's all.



I will no longer publish about WSPR on this blog but on a separate one: www.pc4twspr.blogspot.nl

  3. Hallo Paul, denk dat het allemaal een beetje sterk overdreven word. We hebben toch wel meer van dit soort stormen meegemaakt. Heb 1x een windhoos meegemaakt, dat is iets erger. Dat lijkt meer op een tornado. Jouw vertical kan het makkelijk hebben hoor, zolang er maar geen boom op valt. 73, Bas

    1. Hallo Bas, we hebben nu wel net windkracht 12 hier gehad. En dat is toch een tijd geleden hoor. De vertical had ik al weg omdat het me toch uiteindelijk tegenviel in vergelijk met de end fed die er nu hangt. Vandaar. 73 Paul

    1. Hi Mike, all OK here, in NW Europe 12 people have died by the storm. It was the heaviest storm since 1990. I did nothing with the radio. No damage to the antenna. 73 Paul
