Tower is up

 I used two poles as a ramp to get the top half of the tower onto the roof. The Missionaries stopped by right at the right time to help get the top half onto the roof. 

 I used two clips and some rope to create a hinge between the top and the bottom halves. I stood the top half up and then bolted it down. 

The tower is now standing. Next is to get my 2m/70cm antenna onto the tower and coax ran. Then to buy an HF antenna and get it onto the tower and its coax run. 

Tower Project

1/2 of the tower is up. And today we poured the concrete. Thanks to Raz W7RAZ and Carey KD7WQD for helping with concrete. Now if the rain would stop I could put the top half up. O'well, guess I can shop for antennas while I wait for the rain to go away.

Today my 8 year old finished book 9 of The Tennis Shoes Adventures Series. Only 2 more to go and then he is going to have to wait for the author to finish book 12.
