From what I know about these antennas, this might actually have contributed to the survival of the antenna. Would anyone else care to make wildly unsubstantiated comments?
No, but I concur with LA5HE.
The extended BeCu strip would only make things heavier. The far end floats within the fiberglass tube, so the strip cannot provide any support.
The fiberglass bits are quite robust. I often hear the strip in my dipole reasonating
in the wind whilst the tubes aren't visibly vibrating. Retraction could only help
things in serious inclement weather, IMHO.
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
