Free for the taking:
One slightly rust-perforated Rhon 25G (or equivalent) tower with functional
Hoot Owl on top for bird protection, reverse-mounted bolts all the way up.
Includes vertical antenna fed with internally mounted homebrew open wire
feeder, and prop pitch rotator, but rotator is missing cover and currently not
turning. (Vertical is stuck pointing due North, as verified last spring by
Noah, Punxatawney & Phillips, LLP, licensed surveyors.)
Also included is a 220’ run of "Hurricane" brand Category 5 control wire, taped
to tower leg all the way up, as well as a brand new never installed "Waffle"
brand Cone of Protection lightening arrestor kit with 300' of #24 stranded wire
for easy grounding to any convenient cold water pipe in your home.
Note: one or two Z-braces on top section are slightly but visibly bent due to
improper guide bracket attachment.
Price: Free, but buyer must take down.
Note also: Due to use of 10’ base section and quick-dry concrete mix reinforced
with welded rebar, tower is approx. 1 degree out of plumb, but still very
peachy. (Tower lean is in the direction away from the nearby 138kV lines.)
Home sale pending, must remove tower by April 1. Tower is currently located in
Key West, Florida (subject to change.)
