After clearing the ice from the winch, I can now 
see that the pawl or spring-loaded latch is still 
there, but it looks like the crank shaft that the 
sprockets are attached to shifted to one side 
causing the sprockets to go out of alignment with 
the pawl. Looks like whatever held the shaft 
inline, must have broke. Could be a bushing issue.

Antennas look fine, just worried about any damage 
to the tower "stops" that keep it from slamming
