Having lived in Alaska for many years, we never even thought about heating
a tower.....antennas may suffer from time-to-time. For a picture of the
impact of icing on antennas and towers, check my old WL7M web site - the
picture is toward the bottom of the page.....scroll down to find it....|
It survived fine, despite having about 3 inches of ICE on it......
I agree with Roger....we basically do nothing. Nature takes care of it. If you go out and bang the tower with a hammer or 2x4 section, you're going to have to run fast or the ice will hit you as it falls - not a good thing to do.....leave it alone.

What is the best way (IF any) to keep your tower from icing in the winter??? You Canadian boys found a way to prevent this yet??
