|Ham Radio Antenna's Hold Up Through Storm Doris.
Storm Doris is the latest weather front to hit the UK with wind speeds of up to 90 MPH I have been keeping an eye on my antenna's and shed roof. Storm Doris was loud last night and there was heavy sleet in the early hours with very strong gusts of wind but so far so good on all antenna's shed roofs and not forgetting wheelie bins.

I am off work on half term holiday having a nice time with the family. Elsie my oldest got chicken pox a couple of days before the holidays so we have been taking it easy in doors which has allowed me to be in and out of the shack quite a lot where I have made many nice QSOs on 40m, 20m, 17m and 15m with a new DXCC - Antarctica in the log. The HF bands have been quite good at times throughout the week and I have enjoyed catching up with some good DX conditions as well as some good short skip contacts. Best 73 and good DX!
BTW Elsie is almost over chicken pox and is happy enough. I suspect her little sister will be showing signs of getting it in the next few days, better to get these things over and done with as I got it when I was thirty and look what happened to me..CQ CQ CQ & 73!
