K1VR:  First thing I'd do is to take down the driven element and get it
to the ground. Then open up the two 20 meter traps.  Look closely closely
closely at the wires connecting the trap to the element and the screws
holding those coils (wires) in place.  Why start with the driven element?
Because it is easy, quick and cheap, and you can do it alone. It is one
of only a few things you can do without taking the beam down.
