> 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.
You need to extend the tower so that the rotator is accessible.
Horizontal works as does vertical. If vertical, be sure to block each section
pipe, 2x4 or U-bolt on the leg to prevent it from slipping down and it'll be
okay to climb.
> 3. Did Hy-Gain really construct it or was it done by another tower
manufacturer if anyone happens to know
They were all made in Lincoln, NE, as far as I know. They hired Clyde
Blyleven, WA6ONZ, from Tri-Ex to design and market crank-ups and they sold lots
of them over the years.
