Site visit to Mt. Leinster today to relocate the repeater equipment to the new building. The antennas which consist of two UHF four stack dipole arrays and two VHF folded dipoles and a broadband dish also had to be relocated as these were mounted on the old building which is due to be demolished soon. We were given a space on the small tower next to the new building and a lot of time was spent running the four feeders (two LDF550 runs for UHF and two LDF450 runs for VHF and a CAT 5 for broadband) and installing the antennas. On site were Neil EI3JE, John EI8JA, Billy EI7FJ and John EI2FG. We also had the assistance on the riggers on site which helped us to complete the task and have the equipment on air from the new location by the end of the day.
