Finally… antennas are up

After a moving houses 5 years ago there have always been plans to re-install the tower to the house. OK, some minor changes were needed as this house was the mirror image of the previous house. So all mounting hardware needed a 180 degrees modification . During last winter my good friend Hans made the modifications so basically everything was ready.

May 23, 2020 was the day the magic happened. Together with Hans and my hamradio “buddy” Ronald PA3EWP we managed to get the tower and VHF antennes up and running.

I choose to mount a 9 el dualband yagi by Innovantennas for 6m and 4m as I wish to use the season for 6 meter and in the mean time explore a virgin band for me: 4m. Above this beautiful constructed yagi I mounted my old trusted workhorse for 2m, a 9 el DK7ZB. Summertime will tell me whether it will be VHF for the coming period or that after the 6m season my HF yagi will go in. (Now after 3 days I am pretty sure it will be a bigger 6m yagi next season)

A big Thank You to Hans and Ronald for helping me out.
