I'm starting to wonder if the old guy I met flying in the same field was right. He tells me back in the day he had a UHF setup that kept getting knocked out of the sky by something in that field.

Despite hundreds of feet of falling, the only lasting damage is a missing rubber camera grommet and every nylon screw on the rig. A better day is sure to come my way ��

I live close to some government Navy ships that even though they don't declare it sometimes emit well in excess of what they should. I have had times where everything from 30MHz past 5Ghz just drop for about 3 seconds and then everything re-establishes. Hard part is it only happens once or twice a week.

Glad the only thing is some screws.
