1520 oregon city downgrade.
We have now dismantled the Clackamas 1520 antenna feed system and the hardware is being shipped to another station to be rebuilt for its use. The 1330 station here in Portland has also had its antenna feed system hardware salvaged for use elsewhere. Inductors and capacitors are expensive and so when in good condition often get re-purposed. We’ve worked on 3 projects over the past two or three years where we upgraded the power of stations using nearly all surplus equipment.
