Someone drive their car over the KT 34XA a while back and bent some of the
thicker elements. (Near center of driven element, abt 1 1/2" tubing. I am
tempted to use a vise, and or other stiff clamp and some armstrong to try to
straighten the elements, but dont want to break or kink them in the
process...Once I heard of a trick of filling a tube with sand to support the
tube, and minimize chances of collapse under bending forces...Any ideas,
tricks to bending antenna tubing without breaking?
