During my second activation today on es-054 Tap o’Noth my antenna started falling down, the fishing pole was collapsing section by section. I was trying to hold it together to finish the qso David, but couldn’t copy you and keep the antenna from coming down, not a multi-tasker you see.
So I wonder what you finished with, I came back on briefly but had to get home for my son when he finished school.
I had some interesting propagation this afternoon, when Bill W4ZV called in at 1335z. There was an echo, not something I’ve experienced before, but I’m still new to the hobby. Any ideas? The echo was slight but noticeable. Long path/short path?
Wx very different to yesterday, weak front from the north. It was windy, wet and cold, the bothy bag was very good though and made it possible to activate for a little while. As I descended ES-054 the sun came out and the wind dropped, visibility improving too.
