Pete that’s my dad( KC7IQQ ).. built a really cool Portable Antenna Tower Trailer for a fellow ham named Pat Ahern ( KC7FVO ) Pat came to dad cuz dad has a welding shop and asked if he could build a plate with some stakes he could attach a tower to. Pete said if he brought an axel to him he would build a trailer for him so that he may pull it to remote areas to test possible places to put a repeater and also would make a great field day rig.

Pat went and got an axel out of an old van. took it to Pete. A little about the trailer. Its made out of 3 inch channel Iron complete with outrigger. the outriggers slide in and out of the sides of the trailer. the antenna is attached, a little below the center so that it hinges there ( this makes it easy to fold over and attach an antenna to it.. it has a cable and crank attached to the base of the antenna to make it easy to lay over on its side

Guess how the story goes, is that pat climbed up the antenna and tried to tip it over.. dad said in never budged.. not sure what pats has plans for this portable antenna, but it sure looks like a lot of fun. If you would like more information
