Has anyone been successful in having a US Tower HDX-589 crank up tower
certified by a P.E. for a 120mph wind zone as per EIA / TIA 222 Rev G.?
For that matter, has anyone recently had a PE perform an analysis of said tower
for a successful permit in NJ, especially the base/foundation?
My township is requiring a soils test, a NJ PE designed base/foundation, and PE
certified plans of the tower.
With all the 100+MPH zones in densely populated areas, it amazes me that UST
can only offer me a 90MPH analysis document for their towers. Yet I see a lot
of hams with UST models in these same wind zones. I guess it all comes down to
your individual town's building department requirements. My last qth was in a
township which granted a permit with only a survey showing the tower's
location; my new qth towship is much more advanced.
