Upgrading Ground Station Antenna Array

The current satellite array is made of 2m and 70cm yagis that are more then 20 years old. One over 40 actually. Although they have served me well, there is better. The initial goal was to replace both yagis. After analyzing the the tower this weekend, I have taken the initiative to update the whole tower setup. Here is the current plan…

  • Replace 145mhz Antenna
  • Replace 435mhz Antenna
  • Install pre-amp housing
  • Raise mast 3 feet
  • New coax jumpers
  • Install new rotor plate
  • Raise azimuth rotor
  • Install video camera for observation
