Snowbound Common Barn Farm

Storm Arwen Thwarts G5O

Last weekend’s storm led to the abandonment of the contest group’s entry in this year’s CQ WW CW Contest.

Early on Saturday (25th November) morning and with 500+ QSO’s in the log, the decision was taken to abandon the station with heavy snow having cut off the farm to normal traffic and the high winds causing antenna damage.
