The Southeastern Mass ARA continues to make steady progress on the erection of a new tower at its club house.
SEMARA Club treasurer Scott Szala,W1EV reports that the first 20-foot section of tower was recently mounted on the base; the section was leveled and torqued. Szala added that ground rods and a grounding loop must be added, and hard line cables need to be measured and cut. Additionally, a telephone pole will be placed between the tower and club house to help support the cables.
Plans call for the remainder of the tower to be raised by crane within the next two weeks.
