AMATEUR RADIO

A few years ago I bought a second hand MonstIR yagi made by SteppIR.  Its 3 elements on 40M (and about 72 feet wide) and had 4 elelments on 20M -10M (and is 30 feet long).  It weights 120Kg and unfortunately was too heavy for my tower.

Fast forward a few years and I bought a One Man Tower (OMT) which was solid enough to support the MonstIR, a bit of digging and 5 cubic metres of concrete later the tower was up.

With the addition of some 6mm stainless steel cable, a new Noble braked winch, a BIGRAK rotator ad come controll cables, the MonsIT was in the air.
