A wet roof and radio transmissions from the attic don't get along 4 years ago
The current rainy weather is reasonably deadly for any transmitting,
given the report from
Digital mode reception maps at pskreporter.info
Monitoring PD4KH (last heard 20 hrs ago).
while I am quite sure I transmitted PSK31 CQs and answers more recently
than that and the 10 meter band being open according to the same site.
The attic dipole is right under the roof so any rain making the roof tiles
wet is probably dampening the radio signals. This may get interesting when
there is snow on the roof. I imagine some raised eyebrows when there is an
antenna shaped hole in the snow on the roof.
