Hi to all tower and antenna types...having spent some time looking at
different rohn designs ..ie r45 nd r55 and r65...i am pomdering the chance
of "rolling my own" ...has anyone ever done this and any suggestions???
1. I am thinking of designing something about the sme dimensions as
R65...about 24' on a side ...using 1.5 in steel tubing ...60,000 psi
tensile strength and in 10 foot lengths...using steel flanges to couple
2. my goal is a 200 ft plus...ie about 250 feet high tower that will
support a 3 el 80m yagi with a 72 ft boom..another project for later.....
3. suggestions would be appreciated....
tnx de Rick NQ4I
