1. [TowerTalk] Swapping out a T2X & Wasps... (score: 1)
Author: Kimberly Elmore <cw_de_n5op@sbcglobal.net>

Yesterday, the wind was calm enough that I decided it would be a good dayswap out my jammed T2X with one that I'd rebuilt. So, I prepare everything and head up my HDBX48 tower (8 ft of mast above the

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I seems I'm not crazy -- I've just never had to be up there when the wasps were doing their thing. Unlike some other comments on here about their docile nature, th

Which bolts? The onse that mount the rotor to the base plate, the ones that hold the rotor housing together, or the ones that hold the mast clamp? Kim Elmore, N5OP ___________________________________

I guess I've been lucky: I check mine occasionally and I haven't found any loose bolts. I'm tempting fate, though, given the responses I've seen here, because I don't use locktite or lock washers. Ne

I'm sure shunt feeding towers has been beaten to death numerous times, but I have a specific question. I'm shunt feeding my 48 ft tower at 1.8 MHz, with various antennas on an 8 ft mast above the fee

With the recently past talk about climbing harnesses and gear, I'm going to ask Santa for some new safety equipment. One way or the other, I want more than I have, which is a safety belt with a lanya

Apparently, my measurements were in the ballpark: I cobbled together an L-network that yields a match. However, in the process I noticed that three of the four bolts that hold my rotator to the plate

I've been trying to determine the feed impedance of a relatively short, shunt-fed tower for 160 m. As configured, the system appears to be resonant at about 9.6 MHz. I borrowed a friend's MFJ-259B an

OK, this is what I thought, but wanted to make sure there wasn't something obvious that I'm missing. I don't yet have a nice, grounded, copper-plate bulkhead through which I feed everything, but I'm

Jam nuts are pretty common devices and are used all the time in things like turnbuckles. Here's a simple test: tighten one nut against another on some threaded rod, screw or bolt. Then, try to turn t

I dare say that radials are useful under *any* kind of antenna. Anything we can do to decrease ground losses is a Good Thing. A vertical 1/2 wave antenna isn't fed "against" ground as is a 1/4 wave v
