My Antenna Broke…

So my remote site has suffered a bit of damage after some 140km/h winds smashed into the side of the mountain that it is located on.

The 2m and 70cm antenna are both damaged and will need to be removed and replaced. I’ve spent considerable time and effort into this project, so it was a sad sight to see.

The remote site 99% of the time sits on 144 MHz WSPR as a beacon for other stations to listen for during openings of propagation such as tropospheric ducting or sporadic E.

For those who would like to donate toward the replacement of the antennas, please use this link:
