We decided not to tilt the mast and beam over yesterday despite the worsening conditions. It was a gamble but it seems to have paid off. The spiderbeam was non the worse for wear, which proves just how well consructed these german beams are! Propagation yesterday was very poor but a steady rate of contacts was made and we were still working Stateside at midnight. Bex is also keeping a firm grip on a box of chocolates that Kev and Ian bought her yesterday as a way of thanking her for the excellent cooking!
