JASRA Repeater Maintenance and Repair

 i receive a call from 9W2BUG ... saying that JASRA repeater is down
(Jalur Selatan Radio Amateur Johor) since i'm a tukang sibuk ...
i quickly close my office and rush to the scene ...
we climbed up the tower ...
 WTF !!!!  repeater antenna F%$#ED by lightning !
where is the other half ????
bloody hell it was down there .. so our friend 9W2AAC
climb down the ladder and collect the carcass ..
 F23 Diamond antenna F%$#ED !
 WTF ... lightning arrestor .. sleeping kaa ???
 it's a bird, no.... it's a plane .. hell no it's Air Asia !!!
i wonder this is DIGI or CELCOM ... 
 beacon .....
 VHF and UHF terrestrial antenna
 look what have the lightning has done ....  charred fiberglass
bended copper wire ....
 this is not a charred antenna mind u .. this is Otak Otak ...
fish cake wrapped in nipah's leaves .... long story ..
i'll blog about it next time.. anyway this is damn GOOD !
 9W2JOC and 9W2BUG taking out the charred antenna ...
and up goes a new one ...
 9W2ACC posing with the terrestrial antenna
watch your step ... it's either get poke by the antenna element
or u'll fall down to the other side of the roof top ...
 for posing sake ... nothing to do with our repeater's antenna
 we finish our repair and maintennance ... lucky to have 9W2JOC
to bring us Iced lemon tea & the otak otak to call it a day ...
actually ... there is another reason why i was up here ..
below are the reason why ........
