it,s ok putting them up... it,s all about keeping them up.. not many do...
Cute little station.
sorry - you need to check on that one again - their beam came down in a winter storm! They had designed in a computer controller release to allow it to windmill ... it didnt' work - it came tumbling down. Besides they said the 160 didn't work all that well... verticals seem to work better.
Total R-E-S-P-E-C-T !!! Great job Guys and a brilliant video
Yes it was a sad day when OH8X - Radio Arcala came down in December 2013.
Here is a nice video of it rotating.
Check out this monster tower and installation.
Triband antennas on 160, 80 and 40 meters.
RD3A station - Valery Komarov in Moscow, Russia.
82K look ups on QRZ.
Wow!! That is some setup!!
Quite an amazing station and kudos for all the effort to put such a stations together. Though as a Tower climbing and rescue instructor I find some "safety" equipment in use (or not in use) disturbing to say the least. Mainly by the owner, but hey at 82 whose going to argue with him.
