FPRA needs Certified tower climber service

Posted by Bob Wiser K6RMW on April 6, 2016 at 8:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Fremont Peak Reeater Association (FPRA), the owners of the K6JE repeaters on Fremont Peak, are in need of the services of a certified tower climber.  Our K6JE repeater on Fremont Peak has a static sounding noise problem that is the result of an old abandon dipole antenna at the top of our 50' (approx.) tower.  It is located right next to our 2 meter K6JE repeater antenna.  When the wind blows on the hill, the old dipole antenna rubbs on the tower structure, causing the noise when our system is transmitting.

We need someone to go up and cut the old dipole free so it's not up there any longer.  Any day and time, except Sunday AM, is good for us.  We are not limited on the tower, to KSBW personnel being present.  The tower we are on is outside of their compound.

Please contact me by email <bob.wiser@k6rmw.net> or via phone at 831-840-8228, to discuss your services.

73,

Bob Wiser, K6RMW

President, Fremont Peak Repeater Associaton (FPRA)

Well it's hitting close to home.  Today's thunderstorm touched off a small fire on the ridge behind Tom (N6FVY) and Grace's (W6ULW) barn.  Folks do we all have 72 hour bug out kits, and radio go kits ready?  It's gonna be a long hot summer.  BTW fortunately the airtankers seem to have gotten the fire before it got away; but in south county we are a bit on edge!
