antennas - two of the three antennas on the tower and one ground  mounted. My 
insurance company isn't exactly sure how to figure the damage and  thought 
maybe an electrician could look at the antennas. I am sure some  readers 
have been through this kind of thing and I was wondering how it was  handled. 
by their insurance company. Let's not clutter the forum with replies  but if 
you have experience and you are willing to share your experience I  would 
appreciate an off-forum note to w6nws [at]

         My condolences on  your damage. 
        I do insurance estimates  and have done several dozen over the 
years. Electricians don't know anything  about this kind of thing and neither 
does your insurance agent. 
        Your insurance company  wants a professional estimate because they 
want the work to be done by  professionals. If you send me photos of your 
damage, I can give you an estimate.  I charge $100 for my time to prepare it.
