From time to time you have to repair the antenna system.  Usually it  take  place when the weather is real bad, but for once we were lucky...

3  problems have occured to my 9 year old LogPeriodic, some caused by the wind some by HF (me).

To be on the safe side a 25m lift was rented...

 

OZ1LXJ in action moving towards the 3 problems.

Below: The reason to the high SWR on 30m was easy to spot.  Must be why the manual says max. 300W on 30m....

A couple of new T-match holders was made and first case closed

 

A new bolt and problem 2 was solved.

The front of the antenna was not horizontal, only solution was to tighten  the boom wire

Some pics from ground and 25m level.  The first 3 pics are in order the view towards south, north and west.

 

CU on the bands...
