|Maintenance On KLM 40m 3 Element Monobander|
In the meantime, between sunspots and terrestrial storms, we accomplished needed maintenance on the 40m monobander on the left tower at SL's antenna ranch. I used a Milwaukee impact wrench to tighten the clamps securing the director to the boom. A combination wrench with ratchet head works well however, an impact wrench works faster at least during removal.
Well, I thought its initial torque was enough, and turned out I needed to add a few more turns on the clamp hardware. I used a combination wrench to re-accomplish previous work. Lesson learned.
