Re: speaking of yaesu rotors



Well, Kevin, I have a pair of 1 meter solids, and set of the small KLM beams
for U and V on one.  And I point up when not in use.  And strap down when
threatened with extreme weather (90 miles from the Gulf, hurricances can be
impressive that far inland).  That worked fine at the old QTH with some
protection from trees and other houses.  Now, at the new QTH, which is very
open and clear, may not work so well.  Keeping an eye on it and planning to
lighten the load here very soon.
