Mosley Antenna & Usage Policy

As you know by now the tower raising the antenna mount party will be this Monday morning starting at 8:00 AM.  If you are free all club members are encouraged to help out with the raising.  We have several project plan for that day while the crane is in place.

  1.  Raise the new tower next to the building.
  2. Mount the Mosley antenna to the new tower.
  3. Remove the old UHF repeater antenna.
  4. Relocate the antenna mount to the other side of the tower.
  5. Mount the new UHF antenna to the new location.
  6. And if time permits remount the 2m beam antenna to the VHF tower

Just an reminder do to the popularity of this new major antenna lets go over the radio usage policy again:

  1. Local users aways get first choice of any radio and any antenna. – If you want to make sure you get to use a radio or antenna come up to the club house.
  2. All members should share the club equipment – Nobody should hog all the usage.
  3. Members using the remote’s should always check the security camera’s –  On the members only page before turning on the remote.  Just in case there is an local user at the club house using the radio’s.
  4. Local users do have the right to shut down the remote – But please play nice.  If you drive up to the club and there an remote user using the radio. Grab control of the mouse and open up NOTEPAD and write an note to let the remote user finish their contact.
  5. Remote and Local users should always confirm – They are hook up to an antenna before transmitting.  Listen before you talk!

If we all share everyone will get a chance to try out the new antenna…
