DL1A QRT - 2017/12/17 15:11 QSP from DJ1YFK

Hello all,

some of you may have already heard about it, but not everyone is
following Twitter, Facebook and co. (me included):

Toffy, DJ6ZM (FOC#1946) lost *all* antennas at the DL1A contest
station on Thursday morning, following a gale in which a guy wire of
the main tower snapped. This big rotating tower, home of monoband
yagis for 80m to 10m, then hit another tower, ultimately resulting in
the mess you can see here:

Luckily nobody was hurt and damage to the property is not substantial.

Most of you know that Toffy built up this impressive station over the
last 10 years - not i he first place for himself, but for the group
of operators which I had the pleasure being a part of. We cannot thank
him enough for that!

After hundreds of thousands of QSOs, endless hours both of work on the
station/antennas and on the air, DL1A is now history, and cannot be
rebuilt at the current location.

Fabian, DJ1YFK

P.S.: Here's a picture of the antennas in all their beauty:
