Feb 2001 Tower Trip
Home Up

Here are some pictures from our tower trip on February 25, 2001.  

 We replaced the temporary 18 watt Power Amp (PA) with the regular 100 watt model.  The power was set to 60 watts.  This should help people on the fringes hear the system.  We also put primer and paint on the rapidly rusting cabinet.   We'll need to replace it soon with a fully stainless or aluminum cabinet.  John, KU4GY, the 147.000 trustee, was the ground crew.   Thanks also to John, KF4ACN for repairing the PA.

Ray, KD4BBM, spray paints some of the rust spots.   Salt air winds have aged everything metallic on the tower.
