KK4PGC Tower Project

N4IQ, N0TR and I headed there to do feedline and preliminary checks of the antenna while it is still laying close to the ground.  The antenna array is a log periodic and the rotator is a Ham III.  Tower height is 60 feet and overall weight is approximately 340 lbs.

Below are some photos of the excursion to Bob's place.

The last photo below is with the tower up.  Hard to imagine the scale but the surrounding pines are 50 feet high.  I managed to work Bob KK4PGC from my QTH on 10 and 15 for my 5 Band WAS credit for which I am still trying to build a contact base on 10 and 15m.
