    Hello all. This is NA5B, Mehmet.
    For those who do not have their HF up and running, there is an alternative way to listen to the Hurricane Watch Net for tropical storm SALLY which is going to hit US Gulf Coast and East Coast states in the coming days.

    Sally is expected to make landfall Tuesday, possibly as a Category 3 hurricane, the National Hurricane Center said. The storm appeared to shift east, placing Mississippi's and Alabama's entire coasts under a hurricane warning.

    Here is the link for the WebSDR server that I have been running for some years, a 24/7 basis in Washington DC Area.
    Best regards

    I was able to listen with my little Tecsun receiver. No transmitting. The vertical was tilted over to the ground midday Wednesday. Losses? Just a six meter antenna that was on a flimsy TV mast anyway. Good excuse to put up a decent 6-meter antenna. Other than that? Lots of limbs down. And electrically opened gate in the driveway was damaged. Oh, the Mighty Mule gate opener held, but the winds were strong enough to bend the bracket where it mounts to the gate. ;)

    Still raining and still some pretty good wind gusts. The XYL and I were on standby power for a couple of hours this morning, but it was restored fairly quickly. The power lines in our neighborhood are underground and we are on the same substation as the local hospital, so they are usually able to get us going pretty quickly. :)

    Some people, especially the people to the east in Baldwin County, suffered SEVERE damage, so I'd say we were pretty lucky.

    W6R on the 7268 freq now. Surprised no one is yelling at him even though there seems to be no net operating at this time.

    I had been listening intently to the 20M transmissions as I have a lot of friends and family in South Alabama, Pensacola (in-laws) and Navarre (daughter). The in-laws had the pool liner let go despite their attempts to keep the water pumped out, and now their pool is brown.

    Praying for all those affected!

    Lost my HF antenna to Sally. Funny, I dated a Sally once, and she too was very destructive.
