> While I was in Asia a tornado came through the yard and damaged three
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] arrl.net.
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.
