24 Jan 2014 by sm0w, No Comments »

Finally after months of work the 3 element 3,5 MHz yagi (80m) is up again! Around noon with the snow slowly falling down from the skies and -7 deg C it was there again on top of the tower. The real hero, with all hats off goes to Dag SMØKDG who climbed the tower and stayed up there for some hours in the cold!

The rest of the ground crew on the ground was SMØW Teemu, SMØSHG Adde, SMØDZB Tor, SMØCXU/PY2ZXU Thomas and crane man Lasse who did a superb job manouvering the "monster" around.

Theres still stuff to be done, the coax and control cabled for the rotator and antenna relay boxes has to be hoisted back up the tower again.. to be continued.. here are some pics from yesterday!
