VE7SCK Update

There's a lot going on with VE7SCK at the moment and we'll use this post to keep you up-to-date. First of all, recall that:

  • Last year, we installed the VE7SCK at the Fire Hall in Roberts Creek. Because the antenna is so low, the coverage is very minimal, but we simply wanted to get a foot in the door for when the new tower is installed.
  • A few weeks later, we changed to tone to match VE7RXZ and updated the coordination information.
  • Here are some pictures of the current install.

What's new:

  • Recently, the new TELUS tower was approved, and
  • We started working with the engineer to submit a proposal to TELUS to have our antenna moved to the up-coming tower.
  • Today, our club approved the purchase of a Comprod 4-bay colinear folded dipole antenna (contingent on TELUS approval), and the immediate purchase of equipment to link VE7SCK to VE7RXZ.
  • Members can look at the full details in the minutes.

At this point, we are not certain if TELUS will approve our antenna, but we are in constant communications with the engineer working on the project and others at the SCRD. We will update this post with more information as the story develops.
