Tower section moving Sunday 7th May at 2 PM - HELP REQUIRED

I just spoke with Martin and 2 PM Sunday for work party is great.

There are three double Delhi tower sections to move from the back yard to our flatbed trailer. We can take those apart quickly as well if needed. Plus the 10 foot aluminum base to carry. The antenna is basically disassembled to short elements but needs the boom pulled apart to fit the antenna on the trailer.

The more the better as will go faster. We are good for unloading at our place as have the tractor to do the lifting.

The address is 2021 Frost Birch Way (VE7MM Martin’s place) just off Cinnabar and the old highway and will be on 146.64 on the way there.

Estimated time less than an hour.
