Ladder Line mishap

We recently had some high winds and I started to notice my antenna tuner settings had changes quite a bit. Went out side and took a look at the supporting pole. Noticed the ladder line
had caught on the clamp which holds the top 10 foot section up. Tried several things to get it unlodged on the clamp to no avail. What this did was put the ladder line right against the push up
mast and caused the high swr on the normal tuner settings. Had plans to let the pole down and fix this but low and behold a rainy weekend. So Will have to use as is until weather clears. Going to come up with something to prevent this from happening again in the future as the antenna which is a Alpha Delta DX-DD. With ladder line feed this antenna covers 80-40-30 meters and works very well normally.
