Flying antennas…

There was a due action on the tower fixing the D3 and D4 of the 10m 6el OWA Yagi. It broke back in Dec/2018 and Jan/2019 due to winter winds. Utilizing the opportunity I cut the rotated mast back with 1m as original plan aimed a bit different purpose. I wanted to secure the top element of the mast having longer section inside the tower providing better resistance against the wind gusts.

Ready for action

High in the air

However it’s been quite tough work but managed to complete each planned steps so now I have back all the 6 elements for 10m OWA and having shorter mast on the rotating parts.

Quick parameter check showed exact match to the pre-work reference measurements so the effort was successful.
