You're not a serious dxer unless you've put an antenna back up a few times...

I had a slim jim on there before it did blow over but the dipole is much lighter the slim now lives in the loft.

How is it possible this pole is not bent down because I have seen videos this evening on the French television news showing airbus and boeing aircraft trying to land in UK airports & France but the Pilotes abort the landing at the last seconds because of the wind, i think very frightening for the passengers on board? Also why the Pilotes deserve good wages

Good DX fellow dxer's

Some strong gusts here this morning in hail showers. April has come early!
