Views from My QTH (when its not raining)
Click on Images to Enlarge

My home QTH is out on the Moor Tops in the County of Yorkshire, You may have seen on the World News channels that we have been getting a months rainfall every day for the last few weeks. I am fortunate to be high enough at 1000ft ASL to avoid any flooding! however the lightning has been striking very close to my antennas and I have to wear waterproof s and wellington boots an awful lot hi hi.

    Hello Simon,

    It was in 2000 that I have been in Normandie France and I had a very cool summer. I watched on TV in CEAN city that it hailed in Marseille in the vacances season of South France.

    But I hope for all of you comming soon a shinning and fine summer.

    By the way, I put on my blog a picture of My home QTH "Okayama City" of Google Earth, too.

    Hi Nash

    I have also visited France, I am hoping to re visit maybe next year?

    I am used to the bad weather living in the North part of England, it is often wet and windy but this year is the worst WX we have had for a few years...

    I am off to visit your blog so I will see your QTH

    Hello Simon,

    What nice views you have, Simon. And I understand that You can receive waves from far countries at your home QTH! It is quite different from my home QTH, you will clearly see it on my blog (in Japanese)

    Any way, I have to go out from my home QTH for DX (^-^;). Nash

    Hello Simon,

    Thank you so much for the "link" on your blog.

    As my home QTH, you see the situation is not good for HF high band and V/UHF. But in this condition of my home QTH a little reflection of waves can makes me some unexpected QSOs, particulary on V/UHF bands.

    the image

    But it is OK for the band of 50/21MHz at "Sporadic E". I can easily make QSOs in this difficult situation of my home QTH.

    By the way, the summer has come to our Okayama City! Today it is almost 35 degrees! And this night, Now 28 degrees at 23:00. It is too hot! We have normaly some days like this in a summer every years. (this is only for cities not so high sea level. the place at 500 m high, 21 degrees now tonight, for example) Nash

    Hi Nash

    It sure sounds hot at your QTH. It is good to be able to share some of the Sun shine you are having as it has improoved here with temp of 24 degrees in the day and about 12 degrees in the evening which is comfortable for sleeping :-)

    73 Nash see you soon Simon
