The Tower

The 10ft tower sections originally came from the BBC transmitting station at Brookmans Park some 20 plus years ago. (Many thanks to my old friend Mark G0OJB). These sections sat in the sheds until 2014 when I was able to put them to some good use. Since then they have been holding up a nest of dipoles (160m through to 30M) along with various other antennas. After the winter winds destroyed my home built spider beam, I have a quick made 17m dipole which is up there as well at the moment.

The video below shows the raising of the tower, both attempts! The first go was videoed from two angles, so you see the failing in all its glory twice!!
