W5FCX's Motorized Lift for Alu-Masts
Being an OKIE, it hurts to say this, but here is one very brilliant TEXAN's ingenious method of hoisting up a Spiderbeam on an aluminum mast... totally effortless.
The smaller pole to the right uses a linear motor to extend or retract.
It hoists the Spiderbeam Aluminum Mast and Spiderbeam Antenna effortlessly.
This ingenious idea confirms my life long suspicion that all Texans are fundamentally LAZY. (hi)
Congratulation to Rick for coming up with this brilliant idea.
