Tilted Crank-up tower has installed at my new location on the top of Upolu Island. This tower was used at LDS Church Pesega but it has not been using last about 15 years or maybe more.
Now the unit moved to a fantastic location and waiting for install rotator and antennas.
I thank to LDS Church Pesega and KI7AR (John) who arranged the transfer of the tower unit.
It's located about 720m sea level where as my current QTH is about 100m sea level.
