Rotatable Tower 2
- Published: Saturday, 24 August 2013 05:20
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
The top tower element are from aluminium. The bottom is home made by Erik from steel
Heredown you can see the construction for the wires to lift the tower up and down
Just testing if it al fits together
The steel construction to turn the while tower
Willy is painting the construction
Next step : The construction has to be set very secure
Erik is fitting the small rotor to turn the tower
All toys assembled
Nice job but we were lucky that we had the crane again
Adjusting and adjusting, It take hours to let it run left and down correctly
Heredown you can see tower 2 without the beams. But the glassfiber pipe wich hold the 1,8 Mhz vertical is assembled
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 !!
