Winter is on the corner and the CQWW also.  So it is  time to see what is the status off the low band antennas. Well I found out that the  remote tuner for the north south dipole is swimming.

It is only a coil a few c’s and a small motor so I hope I will manage to get it working again.

The other dipole had one broken leg and i repaired it.

The spider pole on top of the vertical for 160  and 80 meter is inserted a little bit and has to come down to be repaired. Thats planned for next week.

To overcome some problems between my IC7800 and DX4WIN I updated the firmware from V2.10 to V2.30. A little bit tricky because I do not have a UPS and if power fails during the update process you can send the radio to Japan. In the end it went all well….and  V2.30 is working fine.
