Adventure at SM2OAN

SM2NOG and I went up to SM2OAN to help him put up 36m of OH8QD tower and antennas this weekend at his island QTH. It’s a beautiful place and we enjoyed the food, company and also the work very much. The weather was pretty much perfect, even though I got showered by rain while being in the tower on Sunday. SM2NOG did the climbing on Saturday putting up the first four antennas and I did most of the climbing on Sunday putting up the lower four antennas. SM2OAN himself put up the 12m yagi at around 10m height.

I managed to take some pictures of the work.

  1. hi Mike
    Could you send me slide/picture #27 out of the 30 from SM2OAN?

    I can view it just fine but would like to have my vy own copy!
    That is certainly unique among tower bases I’ve seen!!
