Rotator replacement and general checkup

Unfortunately, the elevation rotor of the EME array broke at the end of August.
After receiving a new rotor from Yaesu, yesterday with the help of 5B4ALR Stelios, we started repairing the damage and I took the opportunity for a general checkup.

The long and partly unexpected work includes:

  • elevation rotor replacement
  • replacement coupler
  • replacement of the RX cable with a new Cellflex 1/2 “and new connectors, bypassing a connecting cable that has become useless

Tomorrow or the day after we will complete the job so 5B0EME will be again onair !
