Tornadoes in my area of Florida last night. A strong storm passed through Pinellas county around 3 AM. This line produced tornadoes just south of me in Manatee and Sarasota counties. At least 2 deaths were reported by 7 AM.
Many normally easily workable contacts were brought close to the noise floor in QSB low spots. W1COT FN31 normally has a 58-59 signal (25-30 dB ANF) went as low as 5 dB ANF.
I was very pleased to work Dick WD9DCN EN70 for the first time. Dick was close to my noise floor and was running a 9130 XVCR putting out 25 watts to a Cushcraft 13 element yagi.
