I finally got my 1st award after two weeks for a couple of hours each night and a few hours on the weekends using FT8 and WSJT-X and GridTractor.
Moved the other tower out of the way,Top Left image is a Hills two section wine up Tower 12m total with new winch cable, Tower is For Sale for $400 and come’s with base plate.
2. Started the fab work to the top of Tower making a carboard cut out for the 3mm plate I have for the mast bearing and the Rotator, been told it’s a Hills butt section tower, one lenght is 4.5m, my plan is to use two of them and use the third one at a later date or sell it.
I finally set up my IC-7300 and rasied my antenna a little and now I’m using SSTV and FT8 while I wait for a welder to do my mast,1st contact on SSTV was the image below, thou he’s only a few KM’s away but it was a good test to see if I was up and running, Thanks Allen VK6TDF
