Building the 10 GHz station
In 2002 I started to build a 10 Ghz – 3 cm station. The target was to work rainscatter. When the equipment was mounted in the tower I managed to work some rainscatter stations. But after a short while there was a problem with he twt. I decided to take it down and try to fix it during the winter. Before I could do it a storm hit and the tower with the 3 cm was on the ground. All the 3 cm equipment survived the crash, except for the metal box. I decided to replace alle the equipment in a new plastic box. Its up in the tower and running.
