Default [MW1CFN] Snow and SWR

"MW1CFN via Admin"

I've often heard many people say that their radio reception is 'quieter'
during snowfall. Perhaps the reason for that is that their antenna has
become detuned by water in various phases to the point where it is no
longer doing what it should be doing at that frequency. It may also
'detune' those AC and other non-antenna wires that emit the noise, so
that it occurs slightly further down the bands.

I thought it was because the ossils contract in the cold.
