Rotatable Tower 2

Tower 2 is a little bit smaller then tower 1. It is still fully rotatable and we can also lift it up and down.

Heredown you can see the first element

At first we made a 6 element for 21 Mhz and a dipole for 21 Mhz

Later on we added a 6 element beam for 28 Mhz also

Just before the summer of 2013 we replaced the 6 element for 28 Mhz to an 7 element for 28 Mhz.

Now it is a closed dipole system. We also added a second beam 6 element for 21 Mhz. So today

we can also stack 21 Mhz. It makes a huge difference in transmitting to DX locations !!
