We have a very expensive commercial antenna installed on a local TV tower @
300'. The TV tower itself is 2000'. The repeater is a $1500 commerical
repeater (for 2m). Since the repeater and antenna are not located at
anyone's home, how does one go about getting insurance for this

The climbing expenses alone to attach the feedline and mount the antenna
were $800 for one day. (basically for the climb...not related to hours
worked...if they have to climb, its $800.)

Anyone use ARRL insurance for this kind of project? Anyone have experience
with ARRL insurance?

Anyone have any suggestions on where to look for this kind of insurance and
could it include the cost of the climbing in case the antenna itself was

We are a little concerned, considering there is a total of 3 to 5 Kilobucks
in the project and we probably couldn't afford to replace the repeater,
feedline or antenna if it suffered catastrophic damage, much less pay $800
to have someone climb (the TV station requires us to use their climbing
company, period, no exceptions).

TIA for any pointers anyone might be able to contribute.

BTW, the system works GREAT!
