Jelly (J) Trailer

Tower trailer naming standards Why Jelly?

As is a local custom, ham radio tower trailers require funny or amusing names. It might be obvious but J is named Jelly to go with peanut butter. A nice grape paint job is in the works before winter…

Jelly is a Ingersoll Rand “brand” tower trailer with generator removed and antenna mount added.
