This tower has been struck at least 15 visually verified times and was
averaging 3 times a year, but hasn't been hit at all in the last two.
The tribander is at 100' wile the vertically polarized 144 and 440
arrays are at 130. There are 5 sloping dipoles from around 90 - 95', two
UHF TV antennas around 95', and a side mounted 144/440 repeater antenna
at roughly 50'. There's also a satellite dish at roughly 20' with 2 RG-6
cables from it. What happens this summer? I'll tell you next winter.
