Pouring concrete

SM2LIY joined me at the station and helped out with some work. He also ran the EU HFC but unfortunately 10 and 15m was very poor up here so he had no chance against the rest of Europe. Better luck next year hopefully.

Otherwise I poured the concrete for the “base plate” for the 60m tower. It was very warm, around 28C so it was a real pain but luckily everything went smoothly and keeping the concrete a bit cooler down in the bottom of the hole was not a problem. SM2LIY helped me to build the form for the pillar and also a ramp so we could tip the concrete down into the pillar. SM2XJP came and helped to put the form together down in the pit and we were ready to mix concrete.
