The installation of the new Station Master Antenna

Dave lifts the new antenna from the main roof to the penthouse roof about 125 feet above the ground. The temporary antenna is seen on the left.

Dave & Terry begin removing the temporary antenna from the mounting pipe.

The old antenna is down and the mounting bracket is being adjusted for the new repeater antenna. Do these look like a couple of happy guys or what !

The new Station Master antenna is SLOWLY set into position into the mounting bracket. Thank goodness it wasn't a windy day !

The WD8AYE Repeater

The main components are from the top down - the battery backup controller courtesy of WB8VGE, the 30 amp Astron main power supply, the base station style Master II receiver, the ACC RC-850 repeater controller followed by the ACC Digital Voice Recorder unit.
