NF6Z Visits NF6X Motor Pool Add comments Oct 132012 My dad just visited me for a while here at Mark’s Green Truck Ranch. While he was here, we posed for a picture in front of my M923 5-ton 6×6 truck. 2 Responses to “NF6Z Visits NF6X” Tim says: 2012/10/21 at 17:37 Hi to the Blairs !! Lookin’ good out there…. Is that an RC-292 in the background? 73, Tim Reply Mark J. Blair, NF6X says: 2012/10/21 at 18:49 Hi, Tim! You’re close… it’s a GRA-4 mast with a home-made inverted-V dipole, fed by ladder line made with 14ga THHN and those Ladder Snap insulators. I used screw-in ground anchors in place of the original stakes, and made new guys out of black dacron rope with stainless steel hardware and swaged-on ferrules. It’s a temporary antenna until I put up a nice crank-up mast, but temporary might be measured in decades. 😉 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your Comment You may use these HTML tags and attributes: <a href="" title=""> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <b> <blockquote cite=""> <cite> <code> <del datetime=""> <em> <i> <q cite=""> <s> <strike> <strong> Name (required) Email (required) URI Notify me by email when new comments are added.
