Snow, rain, graupel; we experienced it all on our weekend at Governor Thompson State Park (POTA K-1453). I also managed a five band Parks on the Air activation including 80 meters during the late shift. Thank you Chameleon Antennas for supplying the CHA-LEFS8010 end fed half wave antenna. A full review is coming.
