As allways everything was there inside the package as expected. Packed nice and safe with wrap and tape and plastic bags for the screws and nuts.
Like my review of the end mounted 5 elements antennas for 2m, i have in the other tower, this was the same experience. Easy to sort on the table, everything marked and labeled. Elements pre-tuned from factory, so no cutting or drilling in the driver needed.
I took one whole element at the time and found the matching number for the tubes to go inside each other. Then i put the two small screws to lock the end tubes.
Some of it allready pre-assembled, so it’s only the ends you have to assemble yourself.
The boom part was also easy to handle, and the joints has two bolts on each 4 sides, så total 8 bolts. No wiggling there.
The hooks and the rope was allready mounted, and all you have to do is tightening the rope guys on the ground.
This way is very good, since it’s hard to pre-tighten the ropes on ground if antenna allready on the tilted tower in vertical position, so when tower is up and antenna is horisontal, i have seen antennas look like a banana. This is done secure on ground and you can try to lift the antenna at the mountingbracket point to see the weight on the ropes. On the bracket there is a little tightening pole so it’s allready on tension on the ground. Another smart thing instead of using an exhaust clamp above the antenna mount on top pipe. This way, antenna can be place at the end of the top pipe.
