After 15months of operation I took down the tower for a number of repairs and changes. This did take some days. Now the antenna is up again and everythings looking fine!
Things to be done:
- Cleaning the aluminium tower with high-pressure cleaner from green alga (done)
- Repair the hook of the 40m dipole (done)
- Fixing the coaxial lines where necessary (done)
- Make plugs on unused lines weatherproof (done)
- Install a new power supply line for the 50 MHz antenna preamplifier (done)

Things to come soon
- Eventually insert a longer antenna carrier tube on top (ordered)
- Move the 6m antenna up by 1.2m if a new carrier can be installed
- Install the weather satellite antenna on top incl. preamplifier, if possible
- Re-install the two meter antenna (no preamp available)
- Eventually re-install a 70cm antenna (check preamp before / (done))
- Remove the weather cam from its current position (done) and place it on the tower.
So, there is lot to be done
