9/6/21: Well, we spoke too soon... A black bear managed to get entangled with the antenna coax/mounting pole while being chased by the host's dog. (Dog is fine, coax cable is not) Stream will be down until such time we get the replacement antenna and coax in place and mounted securely.  Sorry folks...
