The club now has a chain saw and we need to do a bit of tree lobbing weather pending.

Mick Simon Conrad and myself will be there this Saturday weather pending.

The biggest evolution will be the row of trees adjacent to the garage.
Whilst retaining their frontage we need to cut the back to give us about 6 metres of turning radius ready for moving dualbander , 4 metre monobander and 2 metre to this tower.

We cant do any antenna work until we have this cleared.

Anyone is welcome

  1. Thank to Simon, Mick and Conrad yesterday. We have cut a small amount of foiliage back to enable luffing of the hf tower. I think we have under estimated the scale of work required on the other trees and there will be a lot to do.

    HF is now working again and water ingress from the traps removed.

    Looking at Flamborough plans now.

    More to follow


  2. Lot of work still to do here, it really is tricky. There is a 4m contest this coming Sunday and I would have liked to get the new 4m antenna up. Seems unlikely given the huge scale of the work. Mind you some people seem to love using a chain saw :)

    Scares me to be honest!
