Sticky Tape and a Hacksaw!

A little bit of patience and a lot of work is all that is required to fix a contest station.

For now we have taped up the spreaders on the Spiderbeam...a temporary fix!


All is now working again, the only problem was getting the Spiderbeam resonant on 20 metres again. As thought we will have to replace 2 sections of the mast and 2 of the spreaders of the beam but at least all is up and ready for the ARRL Dx Contest. Ah! the joys of contesting!

No mention of the beautiful views and the spring weather that changed into cold, wet and bit brezzy
