Crank up - tilt-over antenna mast

After waiting for few months, finally, the guy who I paid to fabricate my antenna mast made a call few days ago saying that they're ready now. What a relief, after paying quite a sum for a deposit in November last year, at least now I can see how it going to look like.

For now, they've done the foundation/base for the mast. Need to wait for a day or two for the concrete to fully dry up before they could put up the mast's base. Some photos as of today:

BTW, the design was taken from John Tait's website which could be found here:

hehe.. tempah kat kedai besi somewhere kat Kuang.. but don't really want to recommend this guy :) Kalau nak buat sendiri, the best is to download the pdf file dari link kat atas nuh.. and bawak pi kedai besi yg boleh buat.. dok tunggu jenuh .. and saya rasa orang lain mungkin boleh buat dgn lebih baik lagi..

Hi, I like the pole that you had installed, Can I know the contact of the vendor that did the installation for you? My client would like to install a pole at his plantation for a wireless access and I see this is a suitable pole for easy maintenance. Hope you can share the contact. from K.L

Hi Soon,

I will surely not recommend the installer. You could use the link that have all the drawing in my post and ask any shop that do iron work. They might be able to do this for you. It took the installer 3 months after I paid the deposit .. and there is installation flaw that I want them to rectify and they didn't come after I call them numerous times.. not recommended at all. One other thing, you can use the aluminium square tube instead of the steel one .. durable and less rust ..

Can you please upload, or send me some closeup photos of the construction because I am looking to made one tower like yours.What about rust after 2 years of use? Aluminium is not easy because needs a special welding machine that i don't own.I am looking for galvanised steel.
Mny 73s de SV9GPY. Good dx and I hope to meet you on the air.

Previous write up deleted. It seems to change the DNS servers in as shown on the status, but it does not really work.

Raspberry Pi + svxlink = Low power echolink node

For hardware, you need to have the following:
Raspberry Pi for sure, with a minimum 4GB SD cardA USB echolink interface, can be commercially sourced or DIY. There are many DIY schematics out there that you could follow.  Here is the configuration on how to get the things working together, courtesy of website:

Debugging DMEE

I've come across many posting on the Internet (via google search), people asking on how to debug a DMEE for payment program. One of the few suggestion was to create a user exit just before the node that we would like to debug and put our breakpoint there. It seems that SAP has built-in this feature without needing us to create a user exit (available in ECC 6, have no idea if this is available on prior releases). Here is how you can put your breakpoint without any coding.

1. Display your DMEE tree using transaction: DMEE_DEBUG.

2. Click on the node that you would like to debug.
3. Go to conditions tab, you could see the Set Breakpoint button. Click to set.

4. Run the SAPFPAYM and specified the payment run date/id, payment format etc. SAP will stop at the node which you point your breakpoint at, as in 2.
5. To remove your breakpoint, just run the DMEE_DEBUG again, there is an option to delete all own breakpoints or all.
