The effect of ice on antennas

Aglow in the SnowEngineering can only take us so far. Mother Nature knows all about engineering and creates havoc with the best sites and the most careful owners.

Take out the power and one is left with generators and a mess.

K1TTT’s great site is an example of excellent engineering meeting the power of Mother Nature. David’s documented it on his web site. Well worth the look.

David — best to you in getting it all back together. What a ton of work.

Ice and antennas definitely don’t mix.

Don’t show the K1TTT pics to your XYL.

Let’s hope this winter won’t be as bad as last.

@N0HR – Already showed the K1TTT ice pics to the XYL! While the damage is horrible to see, there is also great beauty in the sun’s reflections off of the ice.

That lasts as long as walking out the door, of course.
