Aerial photo of the K2US 6 element QUAD antenna on the 8th green of the Founders Club Colf Course in Pawleys Island South Carolina. Picture taken from K1DD Dan DROST'S (K1DD) CHIPMUNK RAF TRAINER in 2012 by K2US. The small building just to the right and in front of our home with the four big windows is my wife's solar heated green house.
I would like to acknowledge my friend of 50 years Woody K2UU who is known as the top notch tower GURU of the Long Island/New York area. He has literally helped hundreds of Hams with their tower and antenna installations including many of the big contest stations including: N2AA/ K2GL, W2A KN3O, W2AX, K2LE, W2HCW, W2VP, K2ON N2NB/NJ7N K2BQ etc. K2UU Woody is shown in a March 2012 photo here with me at my home. He repaired my tower, a US TOWER HDX-589-MDPL, over the years and did a tremendous job for me for which I am very thankful.
The BOOM is GUYED over the TOP and at 120 degrees and 240 degrees with non-conductive PHILLISTRAND GUYS. This idea was suggested by to me by Woody K2UU when I was constructing my QUAD in 1996.
PICTURE TAKEN AT PAWLEYS ISLAND, SC FROM DAN DROST'S (K1DD) RAF CHIPMUNK TRAINER BY BOB K2US IN 2012.The tip of the left wing of his plane can be seen with the left trailing edge pointing at Bob's QUAD in the distance. In the foreground is OCEAN HIGHWAY (Route 17) less than 1 mile from the ATLANTIC OCEAN toward the bottom of the picture. The EIGHT FAIRWAY runs at right angles with OCEAN HIGHWAY with the QUAD of K2US just to the right of the green of that hole. At the very top of the picture the beautiful WACCAMAW RIVER can be seen. The river is running from the left top edge of the picture to the right top edge.
January 2013, Bruce BRAINARD (N4JHY) helped Bob repair his quad. New relay box, new driven element feeders, and a new set of wires,15 and 20 meters for the reflector element damaged by a riding lawnmower when the antenna was tilted down on the ground. Seven of the 9 ferrite cores at the feedpoint of the 15 METER QUAD can be seen in this picture.
