Got a chimney?  I built a very simple crank up mechanism to haul my two
beams and a yaesu 5500

Subject: [amsat-bb] Tripod and G-5500

I am trying to determine the best way to get a Tripod up on my roof with 
a G-5500 for AZ/EL.  I would appreciate any info the board has on what 
type of tripod works best and where I can get that.  Also, pictures 
would be VERY helpful.  I am trying to decide to split the AZ/EL 
functions or not, so any insite into how to best make this whole setup 
work is appreciated.

I look forward the great pictures!
