Let’s hope it will come back when local power is restored, might just be a downed powerline!

My station is down, either lost power or internet…or the house. Here’s one of the P-3 Orions in the eye of Dorian last nite.

The weather stations along the coast have winds gusting to 60 knots: https://skyvector.com

Also the radar / satellite overlay is nice.

Yes- sometime just prior to 1:30am went dark. We’ll see if it comes back on its own or if its an “extended outage.” I also have webcam there, but its also down, so I’m blind and deaf as to actual conditions on the ground. All I can do is wait…

I really should be worried about the house instead of a hundred dollars worth of electronics, I suppose. But I am concerned that the only homemade collinear I ever made that worked really really well didn’t survive the storm.
