Wes Sizemore, at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, who has been
very helpful to QCWA Chapter 119 and Chapter 91 in arranging special
tours of the facility, is in need of a top plate support for a Military
mast antenna support (AB-577). He wrote the following requesting
assistance. Wes is one of the GOOD GUYS and is deserving of any help
you might provide. If you loan him a part, his shop at the facility can
work magic with anything to make anything. And he will return you
loaned part without delay. Thanks you for any assistance you might be
able to provide Wes. Thanks, Vic, W4VIC
Good Morning Vic,
I need your help in finding a antenna mast part.
I have obtained an AB-577 5" portable mast from military surplus and
want to use it for my omni discone antenna but it is missing the antenna
mast adapter. This is a section of pipe needed in order to install the
top guy ring. It is no longer available from military surplus. I need to
obtain one or have one loaned to me so our machine shop can make one. A
detailed drawing would also work.
Anything you can do to help would be great.
