PTA WUG KK Rebuild

After lightning damage, all of the equipment on KK (Keevy Kop) needed to be replaced. This involved replacement of 4x Ubiquiti Nano Bridges, 1x Mikrotik RB433 and 1x Ubiquiti Rocket.

All Ethernet cables where replaced with CAT5 shielded cable as well as replacing the LMR400 cables between radio and antennas.

We also had to install new earthing wires as the previous ones where stolen, and possible contributed to the lightning damage.

Thank you to all that helped with the repairs and to Danie who looks after the site.

The KK site was established August 2008 and this was the 3rd lighting damage to the site.

As this site provides backbone links to most of the Pretoria WUG, this site is very important.
