Saturday, September 10, Workday
If you click on the photos you will see them larger.
This Saturday we continued our work with the Spiderbeam. At 09.00, local time, Sune, who owns a backhoe, arrives. SM3FJF/Jörgen, SM3BQC/Arne,
SM3EXM/Erik, SM3EAE/Lasse, SM3VRG/KG, SM3IZR/Leif, DL7ULF/Axel and DL7VMM/Peter had already arrived to Utanede.
Sune began to lift the antenna mast with the associated 30-pound mounting box and moved the parts,
to where they should be installed. We dug down a antenna rod for the guy ropes.
After that, Sune plowed down both the antenna cable and the rotor cable. A job which was done in
a few minutes.
SM3VRG/KG were our technical advisor and gave us good advice how to raise up the antenna mast. The uprising went well and
when we meet next time, the rotor will be mounted.
