Alt station view227 viewsThe 10GHz gear in the foreground was borrowed from Dale VK1DSH for this event. The IC202 transceiver is attached to the top of the transverter box using velcro. The camera was set up on a small tripod for this photo, but was not horizontal, hence the 6-7 degree tilt of the horizon.

Gridpack dish243 viewsThe gridpack dish for 2.4 GHz is shown here, connected to the transverter via 4m of foam coaxial cable. The feed for this dish should have been mounted for horizontal polarisation, matching the orientation of the dish grids. This was an installation error.
The rotators at the base of both the 2.4/1.2 GHz and the 144/432 MHz masts are also shown here.
