Wow, nice weather......!!!!

I have a wonderful Titan; it is still in the box...... been that way for a couple of years.... keep saying I am going to assemble it (maybe somebody close will volunteer) ...... been using wires forever.....
WX may be getting nicer in next month or so, maybe then.....

Looks like you need a chain saw for all those trees.  Bzzz... an antenna is safe.

Probably would have been a good idea to have one of those tilt over base plates for the GAP.  Remember seeing them somewhere recently.  Might be a good investment  about $150 for cheaper model and almost $500 for the really good one.   Probably best to just replace the bent section .

Hate ice storms. Had one a few years ago and the yagi elements went inverted U-shape; fortunately they thawed out back into shape.

Good luck Jim !

We got it bad. Trees down everywhere, my backyard is trashed from my tree, and neighbors trees. One of his pines sent a branch into the guy for the titan, almost bent it double, and then froze like that. Now maybe the xyl will see the need for the generator I have been asking for.

What?  A HAM w/o emergency backup power.  HI HI that is when I end up at the EOC 1 mile east.  Did you get a lot of ice?  We had about an inch of sleet, two heavy rains today so far, finally above freezing.
