Joe,
 
thanks, good that you are intending to get on, despite those difficulties! I hope we can catch possible irregularities on your signal tomorrow morning. Of course it would be ideal to have that straight carrier - considering your usual signal strength you would probably still be easily observable if you reduced your power by a factor of two pr three.
 
All the best,
Markus

Dear Group,

A trip up the hill in deep snow with a wattmeter confirmed the
RL was seriously detuned with ice. The original 100m wire was
also iced and of little use until it was retuned. The forecast
is for 1C tonight so if the ice melts, the RL will be energised.

The plan is to keep QRSS100 on for the night and duration of
the eclipse. A 2 hour carrier was planned, but this is risky.
A sharp drop in the Kyoto DST 2 days ago and the aerial ice
is mother nature's way of making the eclipse experiment
challenging!

73 and good luck with the eclipse!  Hope my sigs help.
