Two super stations suffered enormous losses this August.N0NI, Toni in Iowa: lost 1200 FT of the tower (10) and 35 (!) antennas in weather phenomenon called “Derecho”. Similar to category 4-5 hurricane. I operated many times from Toni’s station. Victor -N8OO, in Louisiana: lost shack (flipped, moved) and almost all of the antennas in cat4 hurricane “Laura”. No power until September 7 at least. The family house moved off the foundation by 40cm or so. Both probably will rebuild, but that is a LOT of work! N0NI after “Derecho”
