Antenna maintenance

JW4GUA took it upon himself to do some very needed maintenance on our two beam antennas. We have for some time been missing an element for 15m and the 20-17-15m beam have been able to rotate slightly on the rotor pipe. When we got up there we noticed that one of the boom support wires had snapped completely off! Just another evidence that its a hard life for antennas in the high arctic! We have now straightened out some of the elements and remounted the missing 15m element. The boom support wire is now replaced and the rotor and bearings have been checked.
