I have the parts to assemble an insulated base 1/4 wave 160 meter antenna
from Rohn 25g tower. The insulated guys were salvaged from a 4 year old AM
Station transmitting tower that was also Rohn 25!. The guys are 3/16 ehs
with 502 insulators and preforms that start 3ft 8 out from the tower
connected end, then a second 502 insulator 3ft 8i n out from the first, then
there is a span of 71 feet before the next 502 insulator and finally a span
of 66ft to the last insulator. there are 5 sets of these guys. 3 sets of
guys with 4 insulators as described above and 2 sets configured the same as
the first three insulators described above.
All sets start with 2 insulators close to the tower and then 71ft to the
next one. Do you think these will be ok to use "as is" or should I change
insulator spacings for use on 160M? I will only need 4 guy sets for
30,60,90,120ft levels and anchor rods are 100ft from tower base.
