Hello all Hams,

Well as you can see, we are busy with the club station based here in Windhoek. The Scouts of Namibia gave us a very nice room that will fit all our needs. Also we found the perfect spot for our 25m tower.

At the moment I am busy building the tower. The top section is almost done….
I guess I shall be done with the tower in the next 6 to 8 weeks.
If someone has a bit of time left…. I sure could use another 2 hands or 4…!!!

I attached a few pictures. Enjoy.

Hi all,

Just a few things left to do....


Image
Phase 1: Solid steel structure in the ground 200L x 200W x 170D

Image
We took 3 big radiators put 95mm² copper cable around it, put them into the
hole and covered everything with sand. Then we put the copper cable in and
around the steel structure till +- 30cm of the cable was “stuck out” next to all
4 steel studs.
