Playing With Masts

Now that the winter weather is finally behind us ( hopefully! ) it was finally time to get out the 60' Spidermast and get it prepared for future use. Kev, Frank and Ian took the mast down to a local sports field and did some work on it. The Kevlar guys are now cut to length but unfortunately the mast clamps that were sent over from Germany with it are the wrong ones so that will need to be sorted. Wednesday saw April's SSB leg of the 80m Club Championships and conditions were much improved on the previous month. Brian had the best total of all of us who took part. The Data leg of the contest is next week.
