HPN Feed Antenna
« on: November 04, 2008, 05:03:53 PM »
Due to some strong winds last week, the antenna was damaged and is not functioning correctly. Estimating I should be able to get it fixed Saturday afternoon, or sometime early the following week at the latest.

You had better, and sooner rather than later!

What kind of rinky-dink operation is this, anyhow?

Thanks, Jason.  Feed sounds great again.   Did you install guy wires to keep the antenna from being damaged again?  ha....

Ha.  Next time I will bring a real antenna with matching U-bolts.  :-(

This is all my fault, like most everything else.

It has a bungie cord on it now.  Like Dave mentioned, we'll be installing a more robust antenna system in the future.

Does that mean more ladders inside deicing truck buckets?

Well when you make the antenna stronger you had better have a medic on standby when you climb those ladders.
Just let me know I will be on standby  :evil:
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.
