Hi, Keith here in Amherst, NYNo sign of E-Skip yet today. I am sitting at home, the 70+ MPH gusts lifted 3 rows of shingles on my roof, yay!
No antenna damage, though... I heard the following from 1550Z to 1830Z on 29 April:
28.1710 XE1FAS 28.1830 XE1RCS 28.1930 LU2ERC 28.1960 LU4JJ 28.1970 LU5FB 28.1990 LU1FHH 28.2000 LU4AA 28.2000 W6WX 28.2035 K6LLL 28.2250 K6FRC/B4 28.2255 W2DLL 28.2270 KC6WGN 28.2493 K8NDB 28.2500 K6FRC/B2 28.2790 WA6MHZ 28.2869 WI6J 28.2900 N6UN 28.2940 WA6NIF 28.3000 K6FRC/BI have not checked 30 or 15 meters, I am trying out the 1/2-wave 10 meter vertical but with the wire hanging from the attic window. It works, but the noise pickup is not great. I'll get the self-supporting PVC mast together and test it this weekend.
