2m SSB antenna experiment
AC9HP Created a 2m dipole for SSB use. Put it vertical into the front window and worked like a champ with the 5 watt wouxun radio on FM as well.
Antenna Rotor reinstall
Steve N9UIB, Jacob N9MAN and Alex KD9EJS were able to install a new antenna rotor on an exisitng antenna system to replace one that had froze up for Eric N9KDB. The install took about an hour and a half and was a very hot experence. No amateurs were actually injured during this exercise.
