I am new to the tower-talk group but have interest in building an unusual tower
for a small HF beam or quad. It is based on a design from the 80's where
1-inch EMT conduit is used to build sections of the tower in a series of
octahedrons. Height would be about 44 ft. Plans are sketchy and engineering
analysis appears to be almost non-existent. The towers were used to support
wind generators. Most wind generators have quite a bit of wind loading
compared with ham antennas.
Any initial comments?
