Due to the tower replacement scheduled for the F2 Allenton system we have been without the use of a receive antenna to hear our northern systems.
As the schedule for the new tower has been pushed back several times we decided to install a temporary antenna over the Memorial Day weekend. With the help of Bill KA9UCU and Kathy KA9UCV this was accomplished in short order. As the antenna is only 10ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ off the ground there is some path noise on the received signals. Baraboo, Berlin and Fond Du Lac are now operational and should remain so until the transfer of antennas and feed lines to the new tower. At that point there will be a day or two of down time to all systems north of Milwaukee. Construction has started on the foundation of the new tower and it should be stacked and completed within a month (WI weather permitting of course). I will post a note on the web with updates as they become available. Emil N9FBF
