Great Steve .. beautiful illustration .... Be sure and let all know when your book will be ready for sales....I'm sure it will be a "Must" for all folks with a tower. Steve what is your feeling of the "Dual Tram" .... seems it requires more set up etc....but their must be reasons of a dual vs the single tram as you describe..??

Thanks For All

Yes, tramming is one of the best ways to get antennas up and down. I have sent you a draft copy of the tramming chapter from my way-behind-schedule tower book which has some illustrations. Anyone else interested, let me know and I'll forward it to you.

I'm hoping to have the book finished by the end of the year. It has over 30 chapters and contains tons of useful information.
