>Greetings to all...
>As the newest of the TT Newbies, I continued to be marvelled by the scope
>information passing between the group members. A BIG tip o' the hat to you
>However, most info exchanged in this forum deals with specific issues. As
>someone getting on HF after a thirty-year absence, I am planning to install
>a tower and HF yagi. My question: Is there a single source of information
>for tower installation, grounding, cable routing, etc?? I need basic
>information... perhaps a compilation of 'best practices'. I recognize that
>EVERY installation is different. But there has to be a book or something
>that reminds me, for example, to ground my coax at the point of entry into
>the house... isn't there?!? What are the basic procedures/tasks/practices
>to install a tower and HF yagi??
>I would like to end with a suggestion. And I am very serious! I believe
>this group should undertake the project of writing a book. The book should
>address each of the issues associated with tower, antenna, rotor, etc.
>installation/maintenance. Many individuals in the mail-list have specific
>interests and expertise. Let these people write the chapters on those
>issues. Grounding/Lightning protection is a issue that comes to mind as an
>example. Not interested in putting this together as a commercial venture??
>Put it on the web! I would bet that it would be one of the most-visited
>sites on the 'Net!!
>Well, anyway... thanks for the info I've gleaned so far. My tower is due
>to arrive late August. I've got a lot to do until then. I just wish I
>what it was!
