Just wondering if anyone is planning on taking down their antennas in light of hurricane Isabelle?

I have been debating over this and now have to decide before it gets any closer. I have 2 13b2's stacked above a mosley TA-33. Although not very high, I do have a lot of mast in the air.

Picture of array.

We took one of ours down last night, but we had planned to anyway for repairs. This just gave us a reason to do it now. The big tower will likely stay up, as canking it down (to horizontal) makes it more likely things will fall on it.

All of my HF wire antennas are rigged on pulleys, with 5 lb. cast iron window sash weights to tension them, but allowing them to move with the trees.  All survived the storm, with gusts to 70 mph here.
