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.
