Happy New Year 2011

Hello all my friends..

Happy New year 2011.. wish all the best.. and better than before.. he he he..
Sad story at the end of 2010, my 3 element Yagi 10m mono band fall down from 30 feet while I'm mount it together with Yaesu G-250 rotator. The pole crooked up and I can't do nothing.. just watch it going down.. hu hu.. big wind at that time.. suddenly..

Still don't know about the rotator conditions.. hope it will survived..
Need to repair the driven element and also the bracket..
