A lot of good discussion so far. Another possibility is to cut one of the
braces and bend it temporarily to allow longer mast pieces to slide in, then
mend the cut with a welded or clamped splice.
I'd have to model a tower section on CAD to see what extra mast length will
fit. Anyone got a CAD model of a 45G section already drawn up?
<< ... I have a 45G Rohn tower. It is 80 feet tall. I have been trying to
figure (without actually trying a piece of steel) what is the longest
you can have a piece of 2 inch diameter steel mast inserted from the
side of the tower....snip... what is the longest piece I
can slide into place from a standing tower without going in from the
top? ...snip...Gary, N5PHT >>
