That made me ill just looking at the pictures... remember one back in NY in the 70s, still have pictures. It took down Telrexes...

I guess the best way to look at it is that it could have been much worse, no one was hurt and the towers are still vertical.

Been a rough couple of years for various sections of the US Amateur population. Hopefully the recovery will go quickly...

Thanks for sharing Bob.
