Thanks to the great work crew Saturday, we finally got the Carolina Windom back up in the air. We may not be as high as we’d like, but that can be changed in the future if necessary. We did a couple of transmissions with it and the SWR was very low and we were putting out a good signal. We didn’t try to make any real contacts though. I’ll have the analyzer with me next time to really check it out.
With thanks to the WD9BSA work crew and those who came up to help with us. KB9BVN, Brian, Scout Noah (great climber), Scout Alex (also great climber, and NEW HAM, he passed his exams yesterday), KC9BRZ, Dave, (wicked wire weaver in the trees), K9RBH, Rick, (Jack of all trades), and N9CXI, Tom (JOAT, sling maker) and KC9TYJ Nathan (yet another JOAT)! Also the Camp Belzer Rangers and Staff, Kevin, and Dynamite Doug, and the loan of the ladder and general support for out efforts getting this big antenna back on the air!. Great Job guys, if I missed anyone, please let me know, I want to make sure we don’t leave anyone out!
