Mast update 1

The telescopic mast is expected to arrive tomorrow, a week ahead of its first official outing, this will be helpful as the existing mast I have is damaged as you know, this will hopefully give me an opportunity to go out and test out the T2LT antenna on the President Grant II from my usual places, as not having the antenna on air in some time has led to concern that it may not be working as it ought to be, I was primarily concerned that it had been damaged during the move, though this is not as much of an issue as I simply can build a new one as I have sufficient parts to do so.

Should the mast arrive tomorrow in good time this will allow me to get it up to a high point locally and get it out on the air with the Grant II, which will run off the battery power supplied from the jump starter, I don't expect there to be many stations on 11-meters during the day tomorrow as it is a weekday.

I hope to film this for YouTube as I would like to show a bit of success with the antenna, the Big Multimode Nets/Activate All Counties next week will definitely make it to YouTube, and SSB contacts as part of this would be great.

I hope band conditions on the day of testing are desireable
