I don't own any Pirod towes; mine are all Rohn 25G
or 45G and are supported by guy wires. But I do
know of a "nearby" ham that does own one.
>From what I've found out by talking to him about his
tower, you're going to need a few things, if you're
considering one of these...
1) A lot of money with which to purchase the tower
2) The services of an engineer to provide a detailed
plan for the installation requirements, etc.
3) A professional tower rigger that has the use of
a crane for the installation
Pirod towers are definitely NOT the "do-it-yourself"
products as are the various other brands of towers
that are currently on the market. They are designed
mainly for commercial installations; not for ham
