T-7 days: A Week Away
The tower is ready to put together. Over the last couple of days I fabricated the new top plate with thrust bearing, modified and mounted the rotor plate, and got all the miscellaneous hardware purchased. The plan for Saturday is to build the base and completely assemble the tower at ground level. It will be laid over the truck so I can mount the antennas on the mast. On Sunday I will run all the coax cables, guy wires, and install the wire antennas- the 40m sloper and the 30m delta loop. Pictures to follow tomorrow.
