Are you ready for this Tri-Ex Catalog dated 5-69 Self Supporting Tower HZN 
available models 4 Max Dead Load Capacity 275 LB. Maximum Antenna wind Load 
12 sq ft 2 feet above top of tower at 60 mph and it 71 feet fully ex. look 
like it use a hinged base. Your pictures appear to make it a Industrial 
tower that was guyed. If you like I'll make a color copy of this as it a off 
yellow color with black and white drawing in grayscale. I could do it this 
weekend. 73 Gene K2QWD
