Hex Beam down for repair

Special thanks goes to new members Mich and Bill and their amazing truck at helping us take down the broke Hex Beam on the far tower. It was first quite a task getting it off the tower and a even bigger task of just lowering it down since it was tangle with the tower.   All parts have been separated out and examine we do have 2 broken fiberglass segments.

Also using another one of Mick’s truck to work on the 440 repeater tower.  We had to restrung the wire rope the proper way and mange to get the antenna about 10 ft higher. I seem to be getting out even better now.
