    @SteveM They do have equipment insurance through ARRL. Also, it is not clear if homeowners insurance would cover it. Certainly you could get a rider for it, just as for expensive jewelry. But if you unplug power and coax you should be fine.

    Thanks, Walt. I've looked into insurance to cover personal items. It turned out to be cost prohibitive. I opted for the manual insurance that you suggested. One must be very diligent for that method to be effective.

    As I recalled that is services through Hayes or Hays. I just had to renew it for the policy period of end of May to end of Apr. I have the 1500, 6500, rotor, TS-530, KPA500 and KAT500 insured. It's pricey but, as you pointed out, way less pricey than ordering a new 6500. AS it turns out, my rotor did break. knock wood I haven't had a strike at this qth.
