Ian is one of our future superstars. He’s an avid student scientist/engineer and he’s on target to get his Tech license perhaps next month! Many thanks go to Ian and his dad, Chatwin KG5URC, for spending this Saturday at the W5RRR shack to digest the instructions and patiently assemble the Cushcraft D40 40m rotatable dipole kit. The careful measurement, cleaning, Penetrox-A treatment, tightening and build up was not an simple job when one realizes this monster is 42 feet long. Luckily, the fenced in holding area behind the shack was spacious enough to store this beanpole until Friday. Once we get this up on the 80′ tower, our 40m performance should really be fun.
