This why nothing in weather beats a Log Periodic! hihi    5 years in heavy 
ice and between by two stacked LPDA, only one of several ice storms slightly 
bent one element-and it was a 20 minute fix- GL Rick and hope your antennas 
work out!  Anna say's hello and thx for working us in NAQPCW this weekend

Hi All...its almost 6am...I got up a few times last night to watch the
storm as it has moved into our area...it started as sleet, changed to
snow and then changed to freezing rain...we have about 2 inches
of this mess on the ground so far...with my big flashlight I can see
all the antennas and some accumulation but so far no damage....when
its gets light I can much closer look at antennas..I keep thinking
about what happened lately in Moscow to RD3A and his antennas...ice
storms can be very dangerous to ham antennas! Today's high temp is
supposed to be 32 degrees F....so far its slightly below that at 29
degrees F....another update in a few hours
