So This Is What It Looked Like This Morning…

Sure looks pretty, but this is heavy, wet, nasty stuff that does a lot of damage. Surprised we didn’t lose power.

So much for my off center fed dipole antenna. Grrr… Weight of the snow ripped that sucker right apart. Since this is the antenna that goes to the TS-990, my main transceiver is off the air until I can get this repaired or replaced. Or moved to the basement and hooked to the other antenna.

This was the antenna I was really worried about. I never thought the OCFD would break, but this one, yeah. But the GAP vertical handled the snow just fine while the wire antenna snapped. Hmph…

    1. Yep. This is actually the third or fourth significant snowfall we’ve had since October. Usually we don’t get snow this early in the year, but we’ve had strange weather all year

  1. I love the frosting snows – where everything looks like a picture book. You are right though – they are heavy and damaging. I hope your winter this year isn’t as cold as last.
