Several come to mind. Buy out your neighbors and build a gate. Buy a
shotgun and learn how to use it. Hire a 24 hour guard service. Hire
the neighborhood kids to do some work and befriend them. Build a
chainlink fence around the tower. Mostly I would not worry too much
about it. If your coax gets pinned a tdr will find the spot and you can
I'd be more concerned with the neighborhood kids climbing the tower on a
dare. Gotta protect from that too.. If one falls you are liable.
Attractive nuisance (sp?) I think they call it. I've been a ham for 40
years, lived in 17 houses at last count and not a single incident of
pinning or other human damage. to any antenna feedline. Hope your
experience is similar. 73 bob de w9ge
