Where'd I put those saddles?...

The 2 Meter quad and the weather station up close

Rick climbs the tower for the first time

Rick now at work

Nice view of Rick up top

Rick is going to mount a side arm to support the center of his dipole
The side arm is in place and the dipole is on the way up

Whose jet is that?

Coming down is always good

Good contrast showing the
