Shiny new metalwork at Wythall Club!

Wythall Radio Club’s wandering beams (photo left) – much commented on by Hamfest regulars – have been replaced (photo right)!

Our tower now sports shiny new 6M+4M and 2M+70CM dual band beams.

We constructed the beams on Friday night and stored them in Wyhall House.

On Saturday afternoon a working party led by Vinnie M0TAV luffed the tower and – working on the flat roof – removed the four orginal beams and installed the two new ones. 

Below, Pete M5DUO get to grips with some U bolts!

Warwick G4WMH’s gas soldering iron played a key role in fitting the new N plugs. 

Fortunately the original coax is still in good condition.

In addition to Warwick and Pete, the project involved Club members Ian M0LQY, Lee G0MTN, Martin G8VXX and Phil 2E0WTH.

We’re looking forward to trying out the new beams from our new ground floor shack on Tuesday evenings!

A big ‘Thank You‘ to all the Club members involved in this project!
