We will then remove the antennae from the tower and send a two inch OD 6061T6 with .25 wall 14 foot down through the bearing race and the vacated by the old rotor and secured.
After all the antennae are re-set on the mast and tested for a couple of weeks of use, we will bring the antennae switch box down and mount it at the bottom of the tower.
Tom, N5GE, is a ham friend of mine I met through membership in Navy Mars. He’s one of those hams who always has something cooking cooking sometimes on all burners. Right now it is a reconfiguration of all his antennas and how they will be controlled with advancing operator age a away by a project like this and I thought you might enjoy what he is up to as well. Above are some notes on his intentions - the “we” in his narrative is a young fire-fighter who helps Tom out - we hope to meet this climber at K5YEF someday too!.
Check back occasionally for updates....
