Kudos to Alpha-Delta for building such a tough antenna. Once again our Alpha-Delta DX-LB Plus Parallel Dipole survived another dish of what mother nature was serving here in New Jersey. This time it was a heavy snow fall (6 to 16 inches around the state) on October 28 and 29, 2011. The end of October is normally a lovely time of year with with pleasant temperatures and mostly green trees. We haven't had a snowstorm in October since 1987. Lets see what the winter will bring.
