      Original callsign: WA8OKA!




  New Addition to the Shack, 7 June 2012, Yaesu FT-2000



                Nice Hobby! 11/01/2011



   Update: 11-1-11, Installed new K4KIO 6 band Hexbeam @ 44Feet.

 Homebrew tilt over assembly-worked well!

  35foot Universal Tower (aluminum)9 feet of mast at the HEX.

    2000 lb winch-Menards-$80.00


               Grounding: Two 5/8'X 8 foot long copperclad groundrods to tower legs with #4 solid copper wire.


  Trial winch run, two tower sections up.

         It's up! With 14 element 2 meter yagi and 4 element six meter yagi below.(note the W8YXT 220 link) 10-01-2012



  Stabilizing the tower in lieu of guy wires. All legs are sprung. Two legs in front on 350 lb pull porch swing springs

   to turnbuckles at eyebolts into the wall under soffit. Center leg pulled against solid brace to wall, yet sprung with

    compression springs on the nut side of the U-bolt. Theory is to not disturb the stress transfere integrity of the tower

  structure itself yet afford a fair degree of vertical stability.
