Got my new base going!!

Post by Sambo747 » Sunday, 23 January 2011, 22:14 PM

Hey all. I finally got my new base up and running this weekend. Had great weather over here in love country. Got my tower in the air and coax ran. and got perfect readings on the antenna analyzer. Im up in the air 32 feet from bottom of antennna to ground. Im running my favorite cobra 29 black chrome with a astatic 636 chrome. Ive had a blast building this setup and now a bunch of fellas around the pond over here in my town like my setup and tower so much they want me to build and setup their bases! pretty cool. Having fun and loving it! :cheers: x2!!!!

Congratulations on getting your base all set up. :cheers: :bounce:
I just recieved my new Galaxy 959 and hopefully will be getting it installed in my pick up tommorow. Next project I am thinking about is getting another Galaxy to be as my base in the house. But probably wont be doing that until next month.

Again Congratulations on your new set up.! :cheers:

Great job Sambo putting up a tower takes a lot of thought and planning indeed. What kind of antenna did you install on the tower?

Congratulations! You should take some pics I would love to see how it looks. Did you do any tuning to your A99?
Have a good one.

Sweet! The RCI seems like an awsome radio but to much money for my pocket. :biggrin:
Have a good one.
