Section II. OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
2-3. General. Antenna AS-3577/GRC has neither operating controls nor indicators.
NEVER ERECT THE ANTENNA DIRECTLY UNDER POWER LINES.
If you must erect the antenna near power lines, power-line poles,
power-line towers, or buildings with overhead power-line connec-
tions, never put the antenna closer than 100 feet from the base
of a power-line, power pole, tower or building.
Make sure the area for inserting the mast base and guy stakes,
antenna rods, and safety rope stakes is firm. If the ground is
through 2-11 for other possible hazardous conditions.
When selecting antenna sites, avoid traveled areas and roads. If
you cannot avoid these areas, get specific instructions from your
supervisor as to what clearance your guy wires and ropes must have
over traveled areas and roads.
ideal location for erecting the antenna
is the center of a plateau
having no natural or artificial obstructions or electrical interference sources such
level 120 by 70-foot (36.6 by 21.4 meter) plot of dry ground having good drainage to
provide a firm base for the mast base, guy stakes, antenna stakes and safety-rope
stakes. When communicating with two or more distant stations, locate the antenna in
a site most favorable to the station most difficult to receive.
2-5. Assembly and Preparation
Personnel should be familiar with the requirements of TB SIG 291;
failure to follow the requirements of TB SIG 291, could result in
injury or death.
If you suspect that power lines have made accidental contact with
the antenna, do not touch the antenna assembly, immediately stop
operation, rope off the antenna area, and notify your supervisor.
