<<The idea of power washing is not out of the question.  Actually, one 
of the P43 station owners is in the process of developing such a system, 
primarily to wash down critical sections of his antennas which have 
suffered from salt buildup and arching in the past>>

Hi John,
 I wasn't proposing power washing, per se, from the ground, but more 
like gentle rinsing from a series of nozzles mounted on the tower 
itself. It might be easier to accomplish and use less water.

 In any case, good luck and let us know what works best for you.
