Little House on the Prairie

After a lot of hard work and dry weather, we managed to construct a little block building to house the antenna switch controller and the power panel.  The forklift definitely made the bucket brigade for pouring the roof concrete much easier.

While the concrete was setting, a trench was dug between the transmitter building and this block house.  Conduit and power wiring has been installed and the trench has been refilled.  Conduit and its associated power and control wiring has also been installed between the block house and the ten antenna switches.

The switch controller and the power panel have been mounted inside the block house, but are not yet fully connected to other equipment.  We should be able to do some testing of the switches next week, unless something unexpected comes up.  (Something unexpected nearly always changes our plans.)
