KW1U Antenna Restored

KC1CIC bow and arrow launches G5RV at KW1U's QTHRecent storms in New England took a toll on antennas at the QTH of our Section Traffic Manager Marcia Forde, KW1U.  Last Saturday, Greg Bennett, KC1CIC replaced Marcia’s ailing Alpha Delta antenna with a new G5RV.  However, only days later the high winds took it down.

But April 7, 2018 was “antenna raising day.” Greg used Jack’s (N1OTC) bow and arrow and got the antenna up over a tree branch at least 60 feet up.  Now KW1U is back on the air!
