K6AER repeater antenna replacement


Bob Paull, KK6UE, and Vern Potter, W6NCT, recently changed out a Comet GP-9 Vertical antenna at the K6AER/Repeater Site on Grissom Peak. Due to high winds earlier this winter, this repeater antenna suffered considerable damage. Bob dismantled the antenna and overhauled the entire assembly. Hopefully it will work for a few month months until a more sturdy replacement is obtained. KK6UE did ground work for the antenna party, while W6NCT performed all of the work some 60 feet above the ground. Thanks to Bob & Vern for all of their continuing maintenance work on the repeater.
