Spiderbeam II. construction in progress

After some time, actually due to work and other duties but mainly analysis what to change in construction to prevent collapse of antenna tower/pole construction. As per view of numerous people the pole was too weak for HD Spiderbeam + 40m dipole extension with second balun + rotator.

So pole, tube walls were increased from 2mm to 4mm and overall height of antenna was decreased by more than 1meter. So I hope it will prevent pole failure from January 2020 as documented here.

So here are some photos from construction.

Big thanks to my wife and children for their patience and help. Furthermore to my friends and neighbors for tremendous help during whole process especially during lifting antenna up.
