Hi mate over here in Liverpool the winds are getting up and it is lashing with rain,
I have a silver rod on a pole ate the side of the house, 
Hope it falls down then I can replace it with a Antron 99.

Not having to worry about the weather is one of the very few plus sides of being confined to run antennas in loft spaces Smile I'd swap being worriless with having the permission to run an antenna outside above my roof line any day though.

Personally I'd go for a stronger looking built Maco V5000A or a Sirio 827, or maybe a strong built 7 element Yagi. Well I can dream can't I? Laughing

Joking aside, hope everyone stays safe and doesn't sustain any major damage in the forthcoming high winds.

The winds are calming down with the rain now, my silver rod stayed up."its only been up for a few weeks. I remember putting a five element beam in the loft on a rotator,it wasn't a great success.
Then I had another antenna in a massive tree in the garden, that was awesome for dxing.
I had the trees removed years ago
,so just have this wall mounted silver rod, and a couple of spare mag mounts,with Wilson antennas,as a back up.
"My ideal antenna would be something about ten foot long mounted to the chimney, all the base station antennas I looked at are far to long to mount on the roof for my liking.

All still standing here after 90+mph gusts last night.
Still blowing but not as bad but always the same here overlooking the Irish sea.

As my Granddaughter said to me on the phone this morning, "It's very Windy-Woo!"

Everyone thought I was a mad fool to have my antennas in the loft....... Wink

Morning Alan mate.

Yes, the effort of those guy wires will have paid dividends. 👍

Fingers crossed for everyone else that they didn't receive any damage recently. Nothing more gutting than seeing your precious antenna hanging in a tangled and twisted state!

Hello Jeff,

Hope you don't get any flooding with the snow melting fast. It started snowing late afternoon, here in the Peak District, but it didn't settle. There is more forecast this weekend. Never usually amounts to much at this time of the year though.

Got a leaky garage roof!  Snow should be off the roof by weekend. So I can go up and investigate.
Not going to be able to get to antennas for a while though.

Oh yes, mind you, it has been a mild winter this year. Never saw any -30 or -40 degree temps that we usually see.

20 odd year old Imax 2000 on 21ft pole weathered the storm in it's usual manner - bent over at 45 degrees or more. Still looking OK now the wind has died down but my 10 year old Diamond white stick has a definite lean on. Analyser says it's OK and its getting into repeaters etc OK so I'll just leave it.
