The tower is now mostly done.
The HF antenna is up, as are the 2m and 70cm yagis. The rotor is installed, and rotates. Mostly. There’s a tree in the way of the HF beam, so it can’t rotate. I have a guy with a boom truck coming to fix that little issue. I still have coax runs down the tower to make. And install some 3″ conduit for the coax entry. And the lightning protection box. And build a rotor protector. Polyphaser wants entirely too much money for theirs.
I had planned to run the conduit today, and mount the box for the lightning protectors, but I got called to go to work instead. Since work pays the bills, and it should be overtime, I’m not complaining.
I came up with a simple system for grounding the antenna coax at the bottom of the tower. I’ll be working on that a bit more to get it perfected, then I’ll post some info and pictures when I actually get to that stage on the tower.
