Belchfire needed a permanent antenna tower so we started work on that project in June of 2012.  Lynn, Wayne, and Jay got the backhoe attached on the tractor and dug the four holes for the tower.  It is located about where we had the temporary tower setup last year.

Next up will be putting the 5-gal buckets in the guy wire holes and then filling them in with the rocky dirt.  This tower will only be about 30 feet tall so nothing too substantial was done on the guying.
