Mast replacment

The GB3EK repeater team visited the site today and carried out a complete replacement of the antenna mast. We installed 3 new T & K brackets and added a tilt over section which will make carrying out maintenance and inspections much easier.

Old mast. Clamped to a rusty pole that acts as a support for the top safety rail.

New tilt over mount provided by G7IUV.

New mast almost installed.

New mast in place and ready for another 30 years of service.

The mast is now much more stable with no wobble and no rust. Thank you to all the repeater team who helped with the install (M5AAD, 2E0DUE & M0LMK), G7IUV who provided the tilt over and everyone who helped with on air testing.

    Very good to see the proactive nature of radio hams/amateurs continuing to this day and following on from the earlier days where amateurs were needed by govts to help kickstart national systems and give help lending their experience gained doing things like this, on their own . Hope things go smoothly, and good work.
