RAIN…RAIN…RAIN…enemy number 1 of antenna work. Ten hearty CTRI members showed up this past Saturday for a club meeting/antenna raising. Guess which didn’t get done?
CTRI Contest Group is a helping hand bunch. It was decided to try again this Saturday, August 18 at 9 AM at the W1XX QTH, 48 Shannock Rd., South Kingstown. My 160 meter vertical thanks you!
It shouldn’t take over an hour. It takes 3 “crankers” on the winches, guy rope holders, and spotters. Not hard to do, but several folks needed for success. Hardhats recommended. We will celebrate with a BBQ.
So no one makes the trip in vain, your affirmative RSVP reply needed here in comments, email to w1xx[at]cox[dot]net, or voice message at 401-783-1588. I know some can’t make it…certainly understandable. If we have enough manpower committed, and the weather holds up, we’re a GO. If we don’t have enough folks to do the job or the weather looks unfavorable, by 7 AM Saturday I will post a CANCEL comment to this thread on the website, ctri[DOT]club.
