As you know Hurricane Irma struck;
the Northwestern side of Florida.
My family and I evacuated by order of the Governor and the County officials.
Our resident is in Northeastern, Florida on the Atlantic Ocean side.
Upon returning to Amelia Island IOTA: NA-138 (aka Fernandina Beach.) I was surprised to see that I was coming home to a house and not an aquarium.
The effects to our home were minimal. We lost electrical power for a day (as I was told by those that stayed) and no telephone or internet service for a week.
However, my Hy-Gain HT-18 Hy-Toward was nowhere to be seen, until I walked to the backyard.
There she was; lying on top of several trees sheared off the mounting insulators posts.
I thought these insulators would withstand 75 plus mile/hour. However, the island had higher gusts.
Now I am looking forward to upgrade my 6700 and catch up with family and friends.
Ps. yes I took the F-6700 and Maestro to Georgia just in case!
