Well this weekend will see the start of upgrades to the shack, new band-pass filters for 160 80 40 20 15 10 meters will be fitted over the next month which have all been re-tuned By Nick G0SDI and Andy G7LRR. What a massive job this was and getting the filters in situe without altering the tuning and keeping an SWR was very frustrating ( as anyone who has undertaken this job will know ).
These filters also work hand in hand with a set of Coax stub filters that work on the high power side that all have to be tuned to complement the band-pass filters.
New cat7a cable to go in for the network over the month, which is a total new layout of cable throughout the mill. We are also automating the rotator which was always one of the jobs on the “to do” list.
keep coming back for more updates as we go along.
