It is always something
Angle Bracket to support Solar Panels
This morning I was working on a bracket to tie the solar panel system to the radar pole to provide more rigid support. The job went well. This means I did not have to go to the store nor did I drop anything in the water. Victory! While climbing up I noticed that the bracket for the hailing speaker had broken. Fortunately I was able to contact FourJay Industries and a new bracket is on the way. Of course it is a small plastic part so the shipping will be twice the cost of the part. In addition Dayton Ohio is in the middle of a big snow storm so who knows when it will actually get shipped. The people were very nice and helpful. That always makes me smile.
