I assume you had a harness and fall arrestor on !  ::)

Might have if I had planned it better, though without a skyhook there would have been nothing suitable to connect to - except the same pole I tied the ladder to, so (after risk assessment of course) I decided instead to improvise and rely on a long working life with and from ladders and put my trust in my training and about 8 heavy duty cable ties. I have to say, I never felt in any danger - it was just hard work doing everything from a vertical ladder in today’s strong gusty wind - and reminded me I’m not getting any younger! :-\

That's the newer Trident style offering with PoE, isn't it?

Not quite Steve - my ‘interpretation’ of an earlier version powered by a 20volt laptop psu, reduced to 5volts at the top by a ‘hard-wired’ Anker lighter socket adaptor.

Thanks guys. I'll just let it keep going 24/7, so I will try and think of some other use for the snazzy new timer  :)
I bought one as well so if you need 2 snazzy new 7 day electronic timers with battery backup....

Handy as burglar deterrents - as long as you can throw them accurately.  :-\   :-[

We got burgled last Nov, so nothing left worth stealing. Interestingly it was a Chilean gang from Santiago, bloody foreigners are even out-competing us in crime.
I blame the EU... (?)

Hi all,

new station up and running in Germany: EDDG / PWEDDG.
It was an OGN/Flarm station and is now upgraded to PW, using the existing Flarm antenna und cable.
View to south is great, to the north it is obstructed by some trees and hills.

A big thank you to Ashley and Keith for the great support!
More stations to come.

Hi again,

New station in Germany, Meppen1 up and running. It was built from scratch, there was no Flarm station before.
Currently it is without the Flarm antenna, which is still on order. Mlat range looks to be good with 50km at 2000ft.

Update: All three antennas are now up and at their final position. It was quite difficult to get those antennas up there, since there were not allowed to be attached to the roof or visible from the front of the house. https://ibb.co/1RT2FBX.

Kind regards,
Patrick

Hi All,

Another new PAW ATOM-GRID Station went live yesterday. PWPwick near Tarbolton overlooks Prestwick Airport and the busy ‘Kilmarnock Corridor’ between Prestwick and Glasgow. It also has a clear view out over the Firth Of Clyde and North Channel to County Antrim. Antennas are still indoors at present, but the station is already receiving traffic. Once Graeme gets the antennas up on the roof this should prove an extremely beneficial addition to the network north of the border.

Well done to Graeme Park (and to Keith for supplying the kit).

Best Regards

Peter
