Hi Dom,
Tnx for the pics very good photos!!

Mine is up on the tower also, but I used nothing from the old relay 
assembly.  I just took a blank piece of board, drilled it for the old relay 
I got out of the junk box, and hard wired it.  I'm not really sure to this 
day which is right and left, but at the time I compared it with a right 
hand helix I had at the time, and labeled the switch accordingly.

Jury rig a right hand helix, and that will tell the story...Cheap and 
dirty, but it works!!
