I had an Antron 99. A great omni-directional vertical.

2 years up in Montrose CO. Montrose has typical cold/hot weather although UV is very high during summer. I moved to NH (hence the 1 in my call) and took the Antron down.

BIG MISTAKE! I didn't wear protective gloves. The fiberglass exterior of the Antron (supposedly protection coated according to manufacture), had deteriorated and I wound up with 2 hands full of fibers. So small I couldn't even see them.

Lessoned learned!!
