Almost There!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The tower has been remounted, and “tilted” over on Thanksgiving day to add the antennas – a Cushcraft AR-270 VHF/UHF Vertical at the top; a Cushcraft A50-3S 6M 3 element beam; and a Mosley MP-33-N Hy-Brid Tig Array 3 element 10/15/20 beam.  Each is fed with Times Microwave LMR-400 Coax; not attached yet is a W8AMZ 160M Half-Sloper Tower mounted wire antenna, fed with Time Microwave LMR-240.

All the “aluminum hardware” is mounted – the VHF/UHF vertical is cabled.  I have to attach the 106M sloper and make the remaining three cables. Hoping to get the coax prepped and attached  and raise the beast pretty soon! Once the tower is vertical, I have to mount the lightning protection and the coax switch, then finish installing those cables.  Should be finished in a few weeks.

I would like to be ready for some Spring Contests!
