         Antennas : Hex + G5RV

          Soapbox : Conditions were not too bad.  Plenty of stations to work.  Murphy appeared in mid morning on Sunday and destroyed the Hex.


No wind, no sulfur crest cockatoos - I'm absolutely flabbergasted how it may have happen.  During the contest later in the morning Barry VK2BJ sent me SMS:  What is wrong with your radio?  Your signal looks wide and noisy on my (Barry's) panadaptor.
I looked out of the window and the poor antenna was a wreck
