9A/F5MOG/P on 9A/Ph-036

Hello All,
I planned to activate today Oct 5, 2021, the highest summit of the Krk island, in Croatia.
The weather decided differently. When I reached the summit, I could sea rain coming. Hey, the rain forecast was for the evening, not at noon ! I started to erect the antenna. But while doing so, in a high wind, there was some static. So I repacked in a minute. Fast enough to protect everything from the rain.
And then, rain, heavy rain, hail, lightning, and the noise from the thunderstorm.
I was not expecting a thunderstorm. I have never been so wet. I never had so much water in a 1.5 hour walk. I am happy I am safe !
My apologies to the chasers for a missed activation

Hello Pierre,
Je viens de voir ton message. J’ai passe l’autre jour un spot depuis ton qsy en S5, mais malheureusement je ne t’entendais pas.
Bon séjour en 9A.
