If you look at Kevin's page, it appears that One Man Towers USA has
absolutely no relation to VK4VD - and that they ripped off his design. If
that is true, then I do not blame Kevin for not supplying engineering
drawings, taking on liability for something that he had no control over -
especially in the litigious USA.
If you need engineering drawings, then hire a PE (Professional Engineer) to
provide those drawings and his "stamp". It would probably cost more than
you paid for the tower....unless you have a friendly ham engineer - but make
sure that it is a Mechanical or Civil Engineer with a PE, and not a EE :).

I purchased a 20 meter tower from One Man Towers USA in the Fall of 2001.
They, nor Kevin VK4VD have not supplied me with any, I mean ANY, drawings or
engineering analysis for the tower. Kevin refuses to respond to my emails.
I can not recommend anyone to purchase a One Man Tower due to their
unwillingness to provide me with drawings or engineering analysis. The
tower itself is really something to behold. Built like the so call "Brick _
_ _ _ house.
This is the first time I have stated my unhappiness to the world. If you
are able to get drawings, etc.; please let me know and I will reimburse you
for whatever you think is reasonable.
