[ News From The Tech Committee ]

On Saturday March 18th the Tech committee took advantage of the cooler weather. We went out to the Stone Castle site and lowered the tower down with help from Brian KG7SGO from Apache Sands Service Center and one of his tow trucks. We took apart the antenna and inspected it for any problems then reassembled it and. all looked good. Dan W7TWR, inspected the tower itself and found it to be just fine. Then with Dan’s guidance we removed the old coax and hard-line and replaced it with new hard line from the antenna all the way to inside the Stone Castle. With help from Andy KD4ABB, we replaced and installed two new ground wires from the antenna to the base of the building. We also began work on making it easier in the future to work on the antenna without having to lower the tower down. Thanks to Larry AB7C for taking the rotor plate to his home machine shop and cutting the hole in the bottom. In the future we will be able to lower the antenna through this hole and down the tower. We do still have some work to do there however. Thanks to Dan W7TWR, Larry AB7C, Neal K9ZSR, Andy KD4ABB, Dale N7QJK, Steve KB7KWK, and Mike K7URK for your help with this project…
