Conditions Not Brilliant

It really is quite a slow start to the ARRL contest with conditions not been good at all. The best band at the moment is 20m, even the ARRL guys are finding it hard work, struggling to even hear some of the European kilowatt stations a little earlier. At the moment we are "searching and pouncing" but will try a "run" frequency in a little while. At least we are all warm and dry, its raining heavily outside and getting quite breezy! The spiderbeam and the mast are, for the moment, behaving themselves....
