    Here's a hint... Toggle, back and forth, between the picture in post #1 and the picture in post #9 and see if you can spot the similarity.

    Hmm, you were hoping you would have lost the signal for WSIL? :-)

    Maybe its the clouds creeping into the picture. In the future, no matter what channel you are watching (even if its dx), there will be clouds creeping into the picture. Murphy's Law.

    Really?... It's that difficult?...

    I think we have a, "can't see the forest for the trees" thing going on here...

    So, I'll spell out...

    Look at the thumbnail in post 1... The antennas are crooked.

    Look at the thumbnail in post 9... The TV is crooked.

    What the pictures are trying to tell you is:

    Because the antennas are crooked, it causes the TV picture to be crooked...See the correlation? It's called, "humor." Now, was that so hard?

    To quote the great American philosopher, Larry the Cable Guy, "Now that's funny right there."

    ...Try to keep up next time.

    I've managed to turn the antennas 180 degrees. Another high wind / squall line / thunderstorm event is due tomorrow morning. Maybe it'll bend the antennas back...

    OMG, that is so funny I busted a gut. I was rolling in the aisle and people were stepping over me! That's what I get for looking past the obvious. I saw the tilt but was certain that in Ed's *Einstein* brain, he saw something completely different. See the forest for the trees? I couldn't see the tree for its leaves!

    And regarding the weather, what the weather man 250 miles west of you is saying, loosely translated - you might be LOOKING FOR your antennas tomorrow.

    And the oxy-moron wanted to know, "Why do you call it a TV set when you only have one?" While he was waiting for the answer to that one, he also wanted to know, "Why do you press harder on the buttons of your remote control when you know the batteries are dead?"

    Well I didn't see it either, so that's two of us without a sense of humor. :-)

    I understand, Mike... If I still lived in the northeast I wouldn't have a sense of humor, either. :-)

    ... It's Jim I'm worried about. :-)

    The, 'turn the antennas 180 degrees and hope it bends back' scheme didn't work. BIG squall line came through, this morning, but all it did was turn the antennas 90 degrees. With the bent mast the P-7 acts like a giant wind-vane. :-(

    I finally got around to doing some antenna work... The CS-1100 VHF is down for repair... I've got quite a pile of old VHF antennas so I'm hoping I can find enough parts to fix it. Anybody have a Channel Master 3617B for sale? It'd save me the trouble of fixing the CS-1100. :-)

    I cut the mast above the bend, removed the bent section, and re-installed the P-7 parabolic in the top of the tower. It should be (relatively) safe until I can complete the repair project. It sure makes me feel better to see it sitting straight on the tower and not bent over as it was.
