  Pye T-461_R-460 UHF Herhaler. Die herhaler het vreeslik warm geword in hierdie kas, agv die namiddag son, en ek moes hom verskuif na my motorhuis toe. Spesiale dank aan Johan Keulder ZS6CAQ wat die herhaler vir ons  herstel en getoets het.

Pye T-461_R-460 UHF Repeater. The repeater became very hot in the container because of the afternoon sun, so I moved it into my garage. Special thanks to Johan Keulder ZS6CAQ that repaired and tested the repeater for us.

  Herboude gepoleerde 4-Stapel Dipool. Die swart isolasie band moet nog met "girtse" vervang word en koppelings moet nog waterdig geseël word. Girtse = kabelbinders want hy maak mos "GIRTS" as jy hom trek.

Refurbished buffed 4-Stacked Dipole. The black insulating tape must be replaced with cable ties and the connectors sealed with crimping sleeve.
  
Ek moes nog 'n foto opsit om te spog.

I needed another picture tobrag.
