Have one of these and need some help. Very well built but a bear to work
with and I need to do some rotator repair and antenna repair after getting
it moved from Portland and reinstalled at our coast home.
1. Currently use the local auto hauler to come up, extend his boom, hook
around and lay the tower over (high associated cost and very difficult to
schedule plus can't get in when rains come during winter!). Does anyone
have any knowledge of a fixture/winch that someone has designed for this
tower that I can build to lay it over in lieu of the wrecker?
2. Any suggestions on a good and safe way to get just the inner section up
to get at the rotator. When fully nested it is impossible to get at the
darn thing. Regular fixed tower gin poles don't work.
3. Did Hy-Gain really construct it or was it done by another tower
manufacturer if anyone happens to know
Thanks in advance for the usual good advice from this site.
