Missed ORG and ND. Had very bad snow staitc Saturday night. Was wondering
why signals were weak to non-existent on the NW/SE bvg. Discovered 1" of wet
snow enveloping the bvg and elevated radials causing them to droop to
the ground. Had to shake the snow off to get back on the air. Of course,
this happens during primetime on Saturday night. Don't you hate it when
a "friend" just happens to stop by in the middle of a great run?
