Very changeable weather in January continue.
After weak of very worm temperature come snow and again high temperature, which ended with havie night storm with north wind and first rain which change in snow.
All that made very bad picture in the morning check of antennas ( and some animal house….
See on following pictures:
Inverted Vee ( almost dipole ) antenna for 80m band : one part is puled down from connecting box.
Supporter for 40m dipole is broken and failed very near Beehives …Dipole is now sloper dipole ( still in functions )
Animal house roof is down.
Nice weather today, and lot of around home jobs, did not give me chance to go on better location , but home one

Every third Sunday is time for 9A VHF and Up Activity contest.
And as this reference is very near to me (about 15km ) and last activity was in 2019, and no many QSOs where made in past:
It was logical choice.
54 QSOs where made in VHF Contest on 144MHz.
200QSOs on 7 and 14MHz.
Interesting is that DX stations was somehow with better signals than many closer.
