.. rented a small bucket crane to handle the installation of his 3El SteppIR. His tower nests to about 23' so the small crane worked well:
Keith had his buddy Mark WØNCL come South from Iowa to do the heavy lifting. Bill N4NX and I just dropped by to take pictures:
Keith had assembled the EHUs to the boom, cabled it all and checked it before we got there:
