Beacon PVC temporarily off
« on: December 13, 2019, 0054 UTC »
Hi Folks,

Beacon PVC, 13,555.55~ is temporarily off air until storm damage to the antenna can be repaired. I'll update accordingly.

Cheers

PVC restored  :)

I found a broken wire at the mast head balun. The system must have taken a real beating in the storms. Also had to repair/replace the guy wires. Now opearating at the usual signal strength, as verified from a nearby receive antenna.

Cheers
