Rotator and mast

[Today’s run: none]

Got the rotator, rotator control cable and antenna mast installed early this morning.

To install the mast I had to stand above the rotator, nearly as high as one could get on this tower.  It was calm, no breeze, and the tower was steady.  I got myself strapped into position so it was not anything dangerous.

To do List:

  • HF and VHF antennas to be installed
  • feed lines
  • series of posts to keep feedline out of the lawnmower
  • extend rotator control cable to shack
  • shack-end grounding rod

I would like to have at least the VHF antenna up and working before the ARRL June VHF contest on the 11th.
