I live in a restricted neighborhood but I would like to put up a
Cushcraft R8 or Hygain 640 10 through 40m vertical.|
I plan on installing it on a tilt over mast so it will be out of site when not in use, I think the neighbors could live with that.
So I got to thinking it would be nice if I could hit a switch in the shack to tilt it over or tilt it up.
I was thinking I could sandwich a 2" alumium mast between a pair of 4x4's with a bolt at the top for the hinge point.
Has anyone seen such a device. I'm sure this will have to be home brewed using an air cylinder or maybe a rotor and some limit switches.
