G'Day to all readers of Towertalk,
I have recently been given a "Triasto" brand tower, and am seeking
more information on it. It was a donation from the wife of a ham in
California to our mission organization. I expressed interest in the
tower, and it was given to me.
According to the information I have it is a: "Triasto, telescoping, 3
sectional, 55 foot tower with tilt over hinged base. #CLT100 or
#CLT371. It was purchased new in 1984, for about US$ 1600."
Does anybody know anything about the Triasto company? Is it still a
going concern? Was it purchased and incorporated by another company?
Any contact information? Any information would be appreciated. I have
looked in the various US ham journals and magazines (last 5 years)
that I have access to here in PNG, but have not seen an advertisement
for this company, nor does the name sound familiar.
I have seen the tower briefly, collapsed and being prepared for
overseas shipment. It appears to be about 16 inches across a side on
the lower section, 10 inches across the top section. No ID plate with
Brand, Model Number, Serial Number, or anything found on the tower. I
have information from TRI-EX Tower Corp. and was thinking I would try
to use their information for their LM-354 crank up tower as I thought
the towers might be similar. But I am not sure if this thinking is
good or not.
The tower is now in country and should arrive at my house in the next
week or so. I would like information on it before I do anything rash
Any help would be appreciated.
