Has anyone had success meeting the new TIA 222 G spec. in the northern states?
My city simply says "meet the spec." The way I understand the spec is that
the tower / antenna must be able to withstand 90 MPH with 1/2 inch radial ice.
I also understand that the 90 MPH 3 second gust speed correponds to 75 mph.
So my question is simple. Is there a reasonably sized (and priced) 50 foot
tower out there that will meet the this spec? I don't mind paying for
engineering certification if I knew what was being certified was going to meet
spec. By the way, my city will not accept arguements like existing
installations, nesting tower during storm, etc.
Any suggestions appreciated.
