STEP 16: Climb up the launcher steps, and fit the guy attachment ring into the gap in the
joint between the reflector attachment assembly and the mast section. When
the antenna height is to be 35 feet, snap the white-coded guy into the holes in
the guy attachment ring. (When the antenna height is to be 50 feet, snap the
blue-coded guy wires into the holes in the guy attachment ring.) One of the
guy wire snaps holds the two sections of the guy attachment ring together.
STEP 17: Play out the complete length of each of the guy wires and attach them to the
guy anchors. Attach the white-coded guy wires to the middle holes of the guy
stakes or the blue-coded wires to the upper holes in the guy stakes. Do not
tighten the guy wires yet.
STEP 18: Attach the cable grip on the cable assembly to one of the remaining free holes
in the guy attachment ring. The cable grip is shown in Fold-Out 5.
STEP 19: When a 50-ft mast is to be used, the 80-ft Cable Assembly RF CG-3443/U
must be used. This cable must be used for the lead-in between the antenna
and the radio set.
STEP 20: Close Fold-Out 5 and open Fold-Out 6. Unpin the jacking lever from its
stored position and pin it to the clevis on the operating rod of the lower brake
The purpose of the 20 steps that you have just read is to enable you to assemble the
antenna and launcher. These steps must be performed correctly so that once the antenna system
is raised it will remain erect until you decide to take it down.
