Raising a tower for Brian VE7JKZ

17 Jul

On Saturday, July 15, WARA volunteers came together to help Brian Summers VE7JKZ raise a 48-foot Delhi tower. The volunteers were Mitch McKay VE7KMN, David James VA7VK, Al Muir VE7BEU, Don Jordan VE7DJ, Bruce Light VE7BSM, and Glenn Lindsey VE7GRQ.

Mitch and Brian worked hard up in the stratosphere in rather glorious weather while the rest of the team pulled up the sections using a gin pole. A Force 12 C-4S antenna will eventually adorn the top of the tower.

After the tower was raised, Brian and his wife Naomi feted everyone with pizza, beer, and wine. We happily scarfed down the pizzas while sitting on the deck.
