The purpose of this trip was to get measurements of the holes that will be used to anchor the solar panels in preparation for cutting the metal anchor posts. On the trip were Dale, K7FW and Tim, KE7TAC.
The plan for a supporting structure for the panels is to anchor two parallel rails on top of which will be triangular frames holding the panels at the desired angle. In order to know how long to cut each anchoring post I need to know the depth of each hole and the distance from the top of the hold to a level line. The ground slopes about 30 inches over the 15 foot distance between the east and west holes. We drove fence post stakes in the ground in order to set up a reference line. The ground is rocky enough that it was hard to find a place in which we could drive them sufficiently deep.
