It was an overcast humid day when I remembered Tony had called for another repeater party. Talk about humid. The moment I opened my door, my glasses fogged up. Not intending to be the only suffering soul up there, I dragged Adlind up the slopes with me. Ostensibly, to carry the tools.
A moment after we arrived Bear lumbered up the hill with his truck. And his customary jug of ice water. Not long after just before 3.00pm, Tony Yew came up with a Ceylonese and a Malayalee trundling up in a Kembara. Raja and Suchart respectively.
At first sight, the problem was obvious. The old lady had taken a break and her receive antenna was lying horizontal. A quick run up the antenna derrick revealed no damage and Tony proceeded to fix the problem and beef up the clamping system by making do with all unused clamps, bolts and pipes in the immediate vicinity.
To cut a long story short, it was fixed in a jiffy and the pictures are more interesting. Especially the one with Suchart ( Satish ) bending over Tonys exposed rump. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.
