Back to Part 6 Part 7 End of Tour

The "bad" azimuth bearing will be sent back East to be re-milled. Meanwhile, it was replaced with one that is kept on hand. Three days later, the new bearing was in place, the process was reversed, and the antenna was put back together in less than three hours.
The crew will discuss the move and make appropriate changes to the script so that the process will be even more efficient the next time an azimuth bearing is changed. This is the crew who made the change in September 2002.

Electrical engineer Bob Broilo has made a movie of the antenna separation in August of 2001. The file is 22 megabytes, so it may take awhile to load. Once it is loaded, click the right mouse button to play. Thanks to Jon Thunborg for the still photographs of the separation.
