Working Wednesday at Rowan Street, May 30

Club members Tony Kyriss, NE7EK, Keith Clark, KL7MM and TJ Sheffield, KL7TS were at Rowan Street for Working Wednesday, to take down portions of the Rohn 45 tower and other appurtenances.

Tony, our intrepid tower climber, was literally singing in the rain as he removed the VHF antenna from the top of the mast, the rotor and grounding, coax and control cables.

The group dropped and coiled multiple coax runs, rotor cable, control cable and swept the roof with a push broom.

We recovered the 8′ ground rod at the base of the tower and the club’s hand-cranked diesel fuel pump.

A good evenings work at Rowan Street, followed by more work at the RSOC later that evening.
