SteppIR boots repaired


Boy what a mess! I replaced all boots of the SteppIR and I have been so lucky that only one element had fallen off the beam. Another 5 (total 6!) boots were completely torn apart, the other 2 were halfway…

Replacing them was not an easy job, because with a 4 elements SteppIR  (10 meter boom) and a tilting-over mast the middle elements are still 4 meters up.

I checked the working of the copper wire of the element that fell off 4 days ago and that is OK.

So we are back on air, just in time for ZL8 and CY0 :-))
