Down from Walden Pond

When K1VR asked about tower work, I never expected his QTH to be literally just “down the road” from this historic site. Passing by it daily on our way to the jobsite was a true treat.

The job was to install 100-fet of Rohn 55G, the old-fashioned way, one stick at a time, then put his 402-CD up top, and a three stack of OptiBeams down below, two on TIC Ring rotators, with the bottom Yagi fixed on Europe. Some pictures:
