ZS1GRC Mast temporarily lowered

Due to a storm front passing the Cape of Good Hope, the mast had to be lowered due to high wind speed. Storm should pass in 24 hours.

Today testing was done with a new mast, due to very high wind conditions in Gordon's Bay South Africa large towers tend to get destroyed in the winter months.
