Here come the Persieds....

So what happens on the eve of a gauranteed radio bonanza....the system fails. Couldn't be worse timed, the evening of the shower, big rocks coming in, all of a sudden the VSWR goes way high and I can't hear anything. The problem is proven to be outside, likely up the tower and it's very windy with pouring rain.


Well I hope it was a good shower for you.

Unfortunatly I have missed this shouwer due to a broken antenna rotator.
In the meanwhile, the rotor is fixed (new electo-motor) and made a few very nice QSO's in SSB...
one of them was GMØHTT in IO89JC, abt 945km from JO32LS

Cheers, André
