Hi All
I have just completed an inspection of my K9AY RX antenna and the radial 
field. This radial field was laid out on waste ground (desert) to the 
back of my QTH. Much to my surprise this morning I found that all the 
radials have been cut and removed at the point of connection to the 
earth rods. I guess this will have a significant impact on my 160m 
signal. As many will know I will be leaving Bahrain at the end of August 
this year. I had planned to decommission the 160m vertical before mid 
April to take account of the cooler temperatures. It may now be earlier 
since I will not spend any time replacing the radial field, which has 
been compromised on several occasions in the past by wild-dogs and 
Best 73s
