Author: "Don Tucker" <>
Date: Wed, 11 Jun 2008 17:58:37 -0700
Two questions (one prefaced by a comment). 1. Is there an easy way to get to the rotator when this tower is cranked down (short of winching just the inner section up)? 2. I cannot find a Hy-Gain ginp

I live on the central OR coast, just a few hundred feet from the ocean. The cables on my HyGain HG-70HD are the original cables. When I installed the tower here on the coast, the guy at the fishing f

Another opinion and comment. Living on the ocean, I have put my trust in the cable riggers who service the fishing fleet out of the central OR coast port of Newport. They inspect my cables every year

It ain't towertalk unless you think your tower is going down. It does NOT call for an end to the world. No one really knows why the calendar does not continue. Scholars, scientists and mystics disagr

I'm using the same antennas, with the A3WS 8 feet above the TH7DX. The TH7 is at 72 feet and performs well. I can usually always work what I hear. Maybe K4XS will chime in but we were having a discus

Hmmm, I do believe I was just put down! Being able to "work what you can hear" is an almost worthless criteria for judging an antenna, and for the life of me I can't understand why hams keep using it

A little late comment Steve, but you make a very good point. My HG-70HD came with the motor control option but I never bothered to install it. And, glad I did not. Last spring, after all the winter w

Some funny but great thoughts. On the serious side, if someone wants to climb your tower, all the signage in the world won't mean diddle. But if someone does climb the tower, even without your permis
