Pozor na vítr

 

 

Mike W9IP přišel o antény 8×2MXP28 po silném větru. Příroda je mocná… (Díky za info Zdeňku 1DFC)



Dear friends,

High winds toppled  my 8 x 2MXP28 array last night.  It fell because two of
the three 1" diameter bolts that secured the tower legs to the radar mount
came un-threaded from their nuts.  Of eight antennas, two, perhaps three can
be salvaged.  The radar mount, tower, elevation mechanism, and some of the
fiberglass supports survived.  The array had not yet been on the air.  

EME isn't easy.
