4 hours with aluminum tubes…

…results in an assembled C3 Yagi. Actually the boom is still in two parts.

The next step is to bring both halves of the Yagi up to the garage rooftop, bolt them together there and mount to the mast. Thanks to the Hazer, the mast/rotor are able to be lowered down to the appropriate level (about four feet above rooftop) to allow ease of attachment.

The C3 assembly itself went well. No “gotchas” and instructions were clear – dare I say, foolproof.

Tomorrow I’ll know for sure if I need to trim a certain pesky tree. Unfortunately, I believe the answer to that will be “Yes”.
