Antenna repair #hamr #hamradio
Couple of months ago high wind gusts bent a support tube in my tower.
Well, yesterday was repair day. Here are some photos.
Photo taken earlier showing a bent support tube.
Winch in place, getting ready to lower.

Faulty support tube removed.
On its way up again.
improvements: Support tube is now made of steel, before it was of aluminum. Also, notice the second support bearing in the middle. Hopefully this improvements will make it hold.
