Snow Covered Antennas
When I got in from work I grabbed some camera shots of my antennas handling our first significant snow fall since moving into this QTH just over two years ago.


My Satellite Array for 145/435MHz


 Here you can see the wire antenna which is a Carolina Windom 80M - 10M.
 Its up at around 25ft and is 131ft in Length.


 The picture below shows my CobWebb and Hustler 6BTV looking upwards.


 The view in horizontal gives you an idea of how well my garden is elevated
The nearest chimney can be seen in the lower part of the image.

Finally a picture of my Tri-band Snow-linear, I mean Co-linear vertical antenna.


The next thing to do is to see how the SWR is before any transmitting takes place, snow can cause undesirable effects to SWR.


 These two don't really care about the SWR they just like to play out in the snow!
