Apologies for my curtailed activation of OE/TI-012, The Olperer this morning. Shortly after starting, the metal summit cross and my antenna started fizzing. When I switched off and disconnected the antenna I further enjoyed a couple of high voltage electric shocks, complete with sparks. Then the snow started falling. Keen to avoid any slippery rocks in descent we packed and fled the summit, anything but static! It felt like we were being encouraged with a cattle prod to get out of there!
Photo was taken before the shocks!
The descent was uneventful and later perversely the sun came out again.
I’ll try to do better in future.
