DESIGN & BUILD.

Stage one on site at new communication site taking measurements for the new mast etc. The below image gallery shows two images of this stage. Also diagrams & specs. of antennas to be used.

Stage two design a mast to fit the constraints of site. This structure will have to be mounted to the side of an existing building. This will be a lay over design, pivoting half way the mast support using two 63 x 6.35mm aluminium tube sections plate joined. The all aluminium mast support is designed around a 101.6 x 50.8 x 7.92mm x 5.5m structural U channel. The below image gallery shows the hand drawn & computer generated pictures of the construction of this design.

Stage three building the support mast, at this stage it is only bolted together using M8 316 stainless steel bolts, nuts & washers. It will be welded at a later date. The below image gallery shows some snap shots of this stage.
