The Jeep got a trailer hitch this year so I could pull the tower-trailer
With the mountain-top location determined, the trailer was unhooked
The 36-foot long 2m beam, closet to the rotator, wasn't designed for this orientation
With the tower raised to vertical, the antennas got proper support
There was no need to crank the tower up
Michele and Scott assemble the 6m beam, while Fred, sensing disaster, calls his insurance broker
The 20-foot mast doesn't have a rotator. A rope pulls it to the desired heading and a rock holds it
Spectacular trees showed evidence of harsh winters
The 6m station used an Elecraft K3 and a KPA500 amplifier
CQ Contest !

Miracles Never Cease !!
