Just an update to tell all that I solved the problem with my Wilson Mt-61 tower.
Recap: The tower would not come down. Left it about 2 weeks and
tried again and it came down fine. Still of course wanted to know
why. Lowered the tower and took off the StepIR beam and found 8
rivets on the top section channel that had sheared or popped.
Replaced the rivets and all is well.
Thanks to all for their advice and comments. A special thanks to Skip
KJ6Y of Tower Communications. As always he was willing to share some
of his expertise over the telephone that was a great help.
Tnx es 73
