Hub attached to the Tilt mechanism
02 January 2000
The Hub is mounted using a flange coupling between the back plate and the Tilt Mechanism.
A 2" steel tube passes through the Hub and the mounting flange allowing the hub to rotate on removal of fixing bolts from the flange.
This will allow the whole dish to be rotated for easier access during construction and later for maintenance.
The assembly of the dish structure is planned for the weekend of 08 January
