Photos from the Antenna Raising

A photo album of photos I took last week Wednesday (October 7).  We attached the new HyGain TH-11-DX beam antenna to its mast on the tower, and completed assembling the last antenna segment.

With much care and attention to safety, we then raised the tower and secured it.  The tower telescoped-in is about 21 feet tall.  When raised the antenna reaches to a height of about 60 feet.
