Replaced a rotator on the tower.

The Hex stopped turning and pointed to the east.  Three days before ARRL CW contest.  My favourite.  First I thought that the cable was defective (had a bad kink in it).  But replacing cable did not make any difference.  So backup rotator was called for.

 Antenna lowered.

 The old offending box removed.

 Had to be creative to save me removing the Hex.

 The new rotator ready to be installed.

The antenna is "proudly" working again.
