  • To speed up deployment on the Island each Yagi is pre-assembled to the maximum size that will fit into a standard shipping container.
  • Each joint and rivet is covered in self-amalgamating tape to prevent corosion when they are erected next to the ocean.
  • Yagis - protected in bubble wrap and in storage prior to loading into the container in January 2011.
  • Military tent poles of Eastern European origin will be used to support the HF Vertical Dipole Arrays.
  • Packing cases which are no longer required - these will be sold to raise funds for the T32 DXpedition.
  • Having tested many kilometers of coax it's now time to measure the loss of each balun to be uses on the Vertical Dipole Arrays.
  • Chris (G3SVL) and Ian (G3YBY) check out the mains power distribution boards.
  • How many FSDXAers does it take to close a lid? Neville (G3NUG) and Ian (G3YBY) tackle this tricky problem.
