Premature end on DM/BM-218

Thanks to all chasers calling me today on DM/BM-218. Unfortunately I was not able to work all in the quite impressing pileup. Heavy rain forced me to go QRT at 16:11 UTC after 32 QSOs. I could not use the umbrella I had brought with me due to the wind. So the only option to save my equipment from being soaked completely was to end the activation quickly.
Probably some UK activators will smile how such a small rain shower can stop an activation. But as sunshine activator in BM-land I am simply not used to such amounts of humidity :slight_smile:

Sorry to all I was not able to work.
