Wind and QRM during activation of DM/BM-304

Thanks to all chasers working me during my somewhat chaotic activation of DM/BM-304 yesterday. Three times I had to change frequency due to heavy QRM shortly after I started calling. Of course before I started calling these frequencies were absolutely quiet. Sometimes working QRP can be challenging.

Several times heavy wind gusts nearly knocked down my antenna mast so I had to fix it again between QSOs. After 20 QSOs I finally gave up as wind was getting even stronger.
Sorry to all chasers I was not able to work due to this.
