Tree Rats ! Ugh ! Also road obstacles which mostly end up as road pizza.

Hello Bill here N3GTY .... Here is good one... Similar problem
with mine a while back it was resolved when I figured out that a
squirrel chewed my CAT Cable that I was using for control wiring.
Those things are like rats with furry tails. 73 for now Bill

Everything was working normal
yesterday and then today all 3 antennas have SWR so high the
autotuner on FT-1000MP shuts down . Only weather change was a
dusting of snow this morning and a temp. around 17 F. Rotor
turns sluggishly, but it does turn. Went out and visually
checked antennas, but didn't see anything. Hmmm .... Hope
it's just the cold weather.
Only one coax runs out to an
Ameritron 5 position switch at base of tower and coax switch
selects proper antennas. Only thing I can remember happening
was a few years ago one of the relay armatures became
disconnected when a spring broke. Usually get out there once
a year to burnish relay contacts.
I'm perplexed ...
Merry Christmas to All !
