Apologies for the curtailed activation of EI/IS-011, Knockmealdown today. Sheltering from the wind on the lee side (east) of the summit I failed to see the forecast storm clouds arriving early and it was the obliterating static QRN that alerted me. Thanks to all of the 7MHz chasers but there was no time to call on 14MHz as the torrential rain started.
I quickly pulled down the 2 antennae, packed and fled the summit. Then halfway down the sun came out again. I was almost dry back at the car park!
Thunder storm has arrived now.
I’ll try to better in future!
