Two Ideas for Skyhooks Larry Banks, W1DYJ

After purchasing a second home on the coast of Maine, Larry had to build a new ham station from scratch. This talk describes the concept, design, and implementation of an 18’ rotatable mast for a 6m Yagi, and a 34” mast for HF dipoles.
This is NOT a “how to” talk. It is an “ideas” talk and has some practical ideas for construction that you may be able to use yourself.
