Balun Raising

What a way to end the year.
Last week we connected the coax lines from the filter around to where the balun would be connected.  Then the procedure of putting the balun up resembled putting the filter in place.

Brian is the forklift operator.  He did all the heavy lifting.  This is the biggest part of the RF output. The balun weighs about 600 lbs and is 12 feet long.

Perry, Sterling, Jim, George and Mike secured the bracing in place as it is put into position. 
                                         Getting this connected and in place is a milestone.

Filter - Let's Get Balanced

The filter unit of the balun assembly was put in place today.  It was a lot easier than the one we put in last year!  This time we had a forklift that we could move about in the TX hall. This cut down on time and manpower needed.

First the supports were put in place

Then the Big move came....

Cooling Lines

Now to complete the flow of things is getting the Cooling lines completed. Work has been completed outside from the chillers through the duct room and walls to finally being connected to the cooling system of the transmitter.
And now the final process of getting some water in the system and checking for leaks.


In the midst of the hardware installation is wiring everything up.

Feeding the wires through conduit to finally connecting components.  This is the real road map of putting things together.
