IC8POF's HY-GAIN DX-88 reborn.

After more than 15 years of good work in 2006 this fine antenna
due the oldness has ceased to work.

Below is the resulting mini-vna screen showing the antenna's fault
after having noted that no bands were more usable.

So I had to decide whether to buy a new one .... or try to make a repair!

Thinking of the HAM Spirit... and after looking into the money-box
the decision to give a try and look if it would be possible to repair the antenna
was very short.
