I just came from looking at the specs for the AN Wireless
self-supporting towers (www.anwireless.com). I had been thinking of a
60' tower to support my 3-el SteppIR (by no means large: less than 7 sq.
ft.), but I found that the max. surface area one of their 60' Light Duty
models will support with 90mph winds is less than 1 sq. ft.!|
If I want to put this antenna on a tower in this location (Ottawa Co., W. Michigan), I must either settle for a 50' Light Duty tower or put out almost $1000 more for the 60' Heavy Duty model. The foundation requirements are different too.

_______________________________________________Driving home today after a recent thunderstorm, I saw a crank up (telescoping triangular tower) BROKEN completely in two pieces with the beam hanging nearly on the ground. This was a fairly heavy duty tower with only a tri-bander on it and only about a 50 foot tower. He needs a crane to get it down now.
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
