South Carolina work

Took W7WZ & headed to Aiken, where the task before us was to install elevated guy post anchors for N2ZZ’s new tower. Jim originally had 60-70 ft of 25G up w/NO guys! His lot is very small, & am forced to
short guy the tower, & really not able to get a full 120-degree spacing, either. So using 55G…
All went well, now waiting for a few days for concrete to cure.

Then back to Lyman, SC, to hopefully finish W4TUN’s install. Got the trench dug from house to tower base, all the Heliax connectors installed, & things in the ground, the ground system finalized, & the Heliax up, on the tower, but still not quite finished. Came off tower in the dark. Still to go: fill in trench, install the rotator control cable to GH box, after hooking up PolyPhaswer, run copper strap to ground system, & test everything. That’s set for next week, before heading off to Ohio.

stay tuned…
