Versatower is an English product that was made by a company called Strumech.
I think production is now being continued by Francis & Lewis who are a big
commercial tower manufacturer. Versatowers have been around for many years,
they make free standing crankups up to 60ft and guyed crankups up to 120ft.
90% of G hams who have a tower will be using one of these, I think quite a
lot have been sold into Europe also. I use a freestanding 60ft and hope to
add a 80ft guyed soon. Great product, but getting pretty expensive now.
