Antenna Down

Here in Scottsdale Arizona we have had some windy and rainy weather the last few weeks  Last Thursday however was clear and my wife and I took advantage of the nice weather to soak up some Arizona Sun.

While sitting on our backyard patio we noticed that half of my wire HF antenna was no longer connected to the pole that is mounted on the West end of the house.

I had noticed that I had not been able to hear any activity on the bands but never thought to look at the antenna.  Lesson learned.

Now I just need to find someone who can get it back up, or maybe I should just wait until I put up the vertical antenna I have been looking at.  That would add at least two more bands.

    Thank you! Your comment is appreciated and also caught me totally by surprise. It’s welcomed and it encourages me to spend more time on Amateur Radio Dreaming. Ham radio is a great hobby.
