Near the north west tower I installed two closets. In here I will mount the double ten switches from Microham and the switching relays for the four towers to let them turn left and right.
I got these nice boxes from a friendly ham who works at the local county. They were not used anymore and would be would be discarded.

In the base I drilled four iron pipes from 3 feet in the ground to make the base more stable. Danice is checking my work.

I builded a cable box half way from the house (shack) to the towers. Now it is easier to get new cables to the shack and the field.

 

 

Drilled with water two rods in the ground for grounding.

I reconnected the 4 element Steppir witch is still in one of the versatowers. These days there is an dxpedition to Trommelin Island and I need that one for a new dxcc.

The vertical antenna R8 from Cushcraft had some damage due to a storm last year. I repaired that and stored it vertical away. So with the upcoming Trommelinn dx perdition I reconnected the antenna, but found swr was bad. I removed the balun box cleaned all the contacts and reinstalled it. I also measured that the central pin of the adapter N connector made not good contact. I replaced that also and the antenna is working again. It is the first HF antenna for the new shack.
