As of mid-afternoon I have gone QRT on all bands, disconnected antennas and turned off all rigs because of the threat of storms. These are also forecast tomorrow. It is a pity, but I believe a wise precaution.
There will be plenty of opportunities to chase Es and GDX on 6m and 10m.
On 2m I was again beacon hunting: there is one heading that allows me to hear (by ear) the GB3VHF, ON0VHF and PI7CIS beacons. I need to look again for the Cornish 2m beacon. Last time I searched I could not find it even on MS pings and I was wondering it was off the air? This search will have to wait until the threat of storms has passed.
For lightning maps: http://www.lightningmaps.org/realtime?lang=en . This shows storms steadily crossing this region.
UPDATE 1910z: It looks like the storms have bypassed our area today.
UPDATE 2030z: Another storm moving this way. May be here during the night? Will leave things disconnected.
