2010-04-25 Whakapunake Aerial Update

posted Jun 11, 2010, 3:22 PM by Jim Tittsler
The actual aerials removed from Whakapuanke with only 500mm of coax and a connector, appear ok giving an SWR of 1.2 to one on a calibrated (as per Break In) SWR bridge using 2 watts. Hopefully it will be possible to confirm this using a sweep antenna analyser. Have managed to get clamps which are bolted to pole and hold pipe, for aerials, off pipe. Pipe is badly rusted but clamps are usable (vice, wooden mullet, lots of CRC and very large pipe wrench finally worked, not an on site job.) ZL2HC
