Subject: Lousy way to spend a Sunday! A note on what happened today.

Message: Things started out find Sunday and I knew rain was predicted, but I never expected it to be so bad.
It started in SABINE and I had to QRT; antenna wouldn't tune in the very heavy rain.
Light rain while I was in NEWTON was no problem until I moved to 40M. Then the rain again and couldn't hear anyone.
After that, the rain didn't stop, except for a few times the Sun would shine for a few minutes. Couldn't even see to drive at certain times. Of course, after 2000Z I arrived in Cherokee County and the sun came out. From there most of the way home it was raining more lightly.
I plan to stop taking part in future QSO Parties, but sure would have felt better about it if I could have avoided the rain.
Thanks to everyone for the contacts; even had some good DX QSOs!
