Antenna maintenance, new tower

So I will be QRT for a few weeks. Next saturday I am going to remove my hex-beam for maintenance & reinforcement work. We had many stormy days over the past month, some of them 60mph+ and although the hex survived, it needs to be re-dressed a bit. The weekend after that I am going to raise my brand new powered 50 foot telescopic  aluminium tower with the kind help of the guys from my club.

UPDATE: Mission accomplished see updated picture. Thanks to my friends from the club for helping me raising the mast!
