Back again, TTalkers,
I received lots of encouragement on the subject
of BuryFlex and QSLâs. Appreciate all the help,
too many to thank individually.
Now, I would like to fine tune how to run these
two runs of coax plus rotator control cables.
Although Lake Havasu City is lenient on tower
heights, I am trying to be very considerate of
one of my neighbors; he has a nice view of the
lake; I do not. My original tower location (Plan A)
would be on the periphery of his (her) view and
âsheâ feels a bit stressed seeing any of my
tower, at all. My Plan A would place the tower
right by the shack.
Plan B would place my stack and HD-70 tower
at the opposite end of my lot from his view.
This means that the line of sight run would be
around 95 feet. If I were to route the cables âaroundâ
the edge of my slab, it would be around 25 feet longer
with the attendant 90 degree turn (90' + 30', linear).
I am thinking two parallel runs of 4 inch PVC. Of
course, running it around the slab might make the
underground utilities man and the plumber much
My questions include:
What is the best way to run the cable? Under the
slab? In the slab? Around the corner? Should I
try to have the center of the run âdroopâ a bit, with
a couple of drainage holes at the bottom of the droop?
What is the best way to handle a 90 degree turn if I
go that route?
Appreciate any advice I can get before meeting with
Regards, Warren Wolff; W5KKW; WY7L
