well, it's been a bit windy here for a few days.

and today I got a text at work from my lovely XYL telling me that my fibreglass fishing pole holding up my Windom and long wire baluns snapped and came down onto my neighbour's roof.

No way of offering advice from inside a meeting I couldn't bail from so I suggested that my 18 yearold loosen the wires and let it down.

He (and the 15 year old) struggled manfully in awful conditions to get up a ladder and loosen the U bolts to get the pole down.

its too dark to really look at it now, but the weekend is coming......

I suppose I could take it as a sign that it's time to try that open fed  horizontal loop that I have all the bits waiting for......
