I have spent most of the winter trying to decide on what type of new tower
I would buy. I had pretty much decided on a crank-up/tilt-over until I read
some of the comments in the TowerTalk archives. I am now looking at a 70-80
foot Rohn 45G with the Glen Martin Hazer on it. I am not much of a climber
and the tower will also serve me during my retirement years when I probably
wouldn't want to climb much anyway.
I would much appreciate some comments from hams who have experience with the
type of Hazer I am looking at. I am especially interested in the following:
a. How do you safely deal with the guy wires while cranking the
b. How is feedline strain relief done?
c. Will it handle a separate 4 el for 10M, 15M, and 20m?
Any other comments would be appreciated.
Thanks and 73s,
