Tower nr. 1 (6 mtr. EME)
1st succesfull 6 meter EME test I
became very exited and
wanted to build my own 6 meter EME "beast" examples
found were W1JJ
VE6JW , ON4IQ , K6QXY and IW5DHN they all used a 4 square with 7 or 9 el. yagis with horizontal polarization, so that was going to be my choice.
I had take the 2 el. 40 mtr M2, Titanex LPD7 and the single 7 el. home made M2 for 6 meter out of the tower to build a new masthead for the versa
tower were the new home made AZ rotor (PA1GYS design) and the new home made elevation system (IW5DHN design) could fit in, a lot of welding,
thinking, changing, improving earlier designs. below you'll find pictures of the home made elevation system, pictures of the new masthead, the new
AZ rotor and 4 square antenna mounting construction will be added later.
MASTHEAD / TOP SECTION
IMPROVED VERSATOWER DESIGN
|4 x 7 el. M2 FULL ELEVATION|
The tower cranket up to 12 mtrs with rotor and 6 meter rotor
pipe installed below the 40M.M2, middle 7el. LPD Titanex and
top 7el. 6M.M2 taken down on 2006-05-13 to build the BEAST :-)
The "black hole ": 1 mtr x 1 mtr x 2,1 mtr
the "fundationcage" in the hole and the homemade "base-mount" just back from the preservation company
When youre not strong, you must be smart, by means of a 7-tons truck load strap the "base-mount"
is put into his place, after thia fixated at 90 degrees
Were in Fryslan we get our concrete ?? after that it's waiting till it's solid as a rock......
