David VK4ZF, Eddie VK4TJE and Bob VK4YA spent a good morning up at the Mt Cotton remote station site to install antennas for the ADS-B Aircraft tracker, GPS, and the homebrew lightning detector.
Russell, station manager, also attended to keep an eye on us all and to fix up a little more capability of the antenna rotator used for the Yagi’s on 2m, 70cm and 23cm. We were also visited by Vice President Steve VK4AEG who assisted with all the proceedings.
The morning went well especially as Eddie kindly though to bring some coffee and tea which helped warm us up. The completed ADS-B receiving range with the new antenna exceeded all our expectations.
