RSOC Antennas

We are located on the property of the Ted Stevens International Airport (ANC). When there is a good wind from the South, traffic takes off from Runway 14. The departure end is not far from us.
We rented a 65 foot lift to mount the SteppIR yagi to the tower 2018-09-08

Between the Main building and the Ops building, we have a satellite antenna tower with a VHF and UHF yagis mounted on a mast with azimuth and elevation rotators. 2020-08-31
Kevin Opalka (KL1V) and Kent Petty (KL5T) mount the 2-meter and 70-cm long boom antennas on the satellite elevation rotor cross-arms. 2020-08-31

Transmission lines drop down through holes in the floor of the Ops Room, and the cables are hung from the basement ceiling. The coffee cans covering the empty conduits were supplied and installed by the FCC.
The Remote Antenna Switch is also connected to multiple dummy loads.
Above the gray box, you can see multiple conduits that lead to the outside of the building.
The other side of the conduits. Call 811 for underground locates. The orange dot is above the telephone line. The big gray conduit with the connectors runs to the tower.
Conduit detail. Maybe the black thing pointing to the upper left is a cable with a loop taped onto it to pull through the conduit. The little mag mount antenna might be a cell phone extender, or a LoRa antenna. The yellow “wye” is for the rain gutter downspouts.
Backing up from the Ops building on the left, along the horizon the first landmark is the tower. Next on the building eave is a mast mounted GPS antenna (GPS is used as a precise time reference). On the far side of the covered walkway is the mast for the satellite station with a rotor, no horizontal mast or antennas. On the right hand building eave is a CB antenna mast. 2020-0-05
No, the heat exchanger is not radio controlled, but it is a handy place to put a mag mount antenna.
To the East of the Ops Building we have a trailer with a 40 foot crank up mast. The mast supports a multi-band Alpha Delta dipole along with a vertical antenna at the top 2020-06-05
Top of the tower. At the very top is a vertical antenna. Below it is a log periodic antenna. The SteppIR yagi is about to be mounted. This mast is on a rotator. The post on a platform antenna has been removed. The arm on the right has a discone antenna.
On the right side of the tower, near the top is a gray box. This is the remote tuner for our Quad Loop antenna. Near the middle of the tower are three vertical antennas. You can see the CB antenna on the eave of the main building. The fiberglass mast in the upper right hand corner supports a dipole. The other fiberglass mast in the background to the right supports one corner of the Quad Loop. 2020-06-05


When we talk about the total number of antennas at the RSOC, we don’t count the antennas in this bin in the basement.
How do you count radios and antennas? This is the top of the console in the South West corner of the Ops Room. Mounted in the console are two scanners and a VHF/UHF transceiver. There are five handheld transceivers, a DMR hotspot, two wireless phones and a mag mount antenna that may or may not be connected to anything. What’s the count in this picture?
