Default Old antenna restored

Many a year ago my Elmer N4CZT built this antenna for oscar 10.
It was originally 62elements. 30 x 30. Later when oscar 13 was running it was cut back to 42 elements. He bought this from him 15 years ago.

It is not much good for the birds that are up now (LEO). It is very directional.
But if we ever get any HEO birds up it would probably be fine.

What I plan now is to totally disassemble and restore it.

This beam was also used on EME
