This tower was manufactured by Tristao.  It uses 
straight bracing which is a dead give away that 
it is a GUYED tower.  The fact that it is made by 
Tristao tells us that it is OLD, although the 
pictures show it to be in good shape.  Tristao 
has been out of business for a LONG time, and now 
lives under the US Tower banner employing much improved designs.

This tower will successfully manage a small 
tribander and an additional VHF/UHF antenna which 
is evident by what you see in the pictures.  This 
is a good find and will work fine for amateur 
radio and hold much more than a TV antenna, if used as described.
