Don's "Pre-Derecho" Antenna Configuration

Warrenton, Virginia

In April 2012 had two wall brackets; a 5' mast to the Rotator; an 80" mast for the two antennas (needed to keep them 36" apart).
After Warrenton got hit by the "super derecho" storm on 30 June, I upgraded to a 7' mast (with an home made third bracket) to the Rotator.
The 80 MPH winds actually bent the middle bracket which had to be taken down and bent back to original state.
To date, I'm happy with the reception I'm getting ( and NO more provider bills ).
