September antenna work continues

For our work-play session on September 16th, we assembled the antenna elements of the TH-DX-11.  We were visited by KS4UA, who took the photos.

Matt KA0S applied a paste on parts of the antenna rod elements where they were to be inserted and clamped inside an adjacent rod. Gary WA2JQZ then connected the rods to the correct dimensions and clamped them. [Photo by KS4UA.]

During lunch on September 28, Don N4MSN met up with Stephen Duncheskie KK4IBB and his post driver at at the club.  Within minutes they finished installing two ground rods adjacent to the tower.  They are hard to identify in the pictures so Don circled them.  [Photos by Don N4MSN]
