Antennas and Wind

Mike Check K5UCQ

Well, I had a casualty today! I came home from work and noticed that my
Cushcraft R-5 vertical was leaning oddly at the base.
I went up on the roof to see what was up, and got to the antenna just in
time for a good gust to bend it over!
Anyone else lose anything? Or does anyone know of an R-5 that is good for
parts around this area? I am in need
of the counterpoise box as it appears badly damaged.

73 and batten down the hatches!
