4" steels pipes? How thick were the walls and have you had any wind to see
how they held up?

> I started using these at my Bear, Del., QTH around 1981. Those were 4-inch
steel pipes filled with concrete, with about 5 feet in a block of concrete
in the ground and 5 above.
> Now I use mostly I beam elevated guy posts. Generally 10 feet long, with 5
or 6 feet in a hole that is 12" diameter and filled with concrete. There's a
photo of two of them on my Web site, www.aa1k.us, under "Towers". I'll try
to get a couple more up in the next few days.
