The latest events

Antenna dismantling for a deceased member

At the beginning of 2024, a long-standing member of our local club passed away unexpectedly. The family asked us for help to dismantle the antenna system on the deceased's house.

On the day of dismantling, the weather, which had been forecast as unsettled, helped and it remained pleasant and dry. While Michael (DL5JS) and Andreas (DC4AB) secured themselves on the roof to dismantle the heavy antennas into their individual parts, Anton (DE5RAK) and Hendrik (DM5MD) took delivery of the dismantled parts in the garden.

Meanwhile, Klaus (DL5RFK) and Thomas (DL8YJ) took care of pulling back the antenna cables laid along the house and dismantling the radio station.

After only six and a half hours, the mast on the roof was freed from its antennas and the antenna parts were stowed away in our cars for disposal.
