>  Hello every one,

The 24 straight sections of R-55 are  still for sale.

I am asking $150 per section. These sold new for  $230/section in 1990 and 
while rohn is no longer in business ,Valmont and (I  think) Radian make spare 
parts for these.

Buy all 24 sections for the  $3600 total and I'll throw in the guy 
wire(including 1500' of new guy wire), the  turnbuckles and anchor plates, 2 
anchor rods(8') and the top and bottom  plates.We also have most of the bolts 
nuts in case you want to reuse  them.

Also available is the lighting kit which includes your choice of a  homebrew 
solid state flasher, or an older mechanical ROHN flasher & control  box. Also 
1 - 300mm Beacon fixture, and a dual OB1 obstruction (sidelight)  assembly, 
and the associated cables made from outdoor UV resistant  romex.
This all at a package price for $700.

These sections were up  for 17 years are painted red/white and still in good 
to very good shape. The  paint is peeling but the steel and galvanizing are in 
very good shape. This was  taken down by Sammy Smith in May this year and no 
damage was incurred then. You  may want to contact Sammy for a second opinion 
or a reference.

Parts of  this tower had fallen 17 years ago and during re-erection, one 
section busted  loose one of the daigonal rebars when we emergency lifted 120' 
tower plus  antennas & feedlines. ALL sections are straight and in very good 
shape other  than the above mentioned daigonal rebar.

We can also repaint this tower  if needed for $500 or $21/section.

If you've read this far, Thanks for  looking & 73
