> I am about to install a US Tower crankup model HDX589. I would like to
talk (via phone) to anyone who has installed a US Tower crankup and can
help me with some general questions related to the concrete base work -- rebar
work, Ufer ground, conduit, general questions about how to set the base up
properly, any caveats that I should be aware of.
All of these topics are covered in my new book - UP THE TOWER - The
Complete Guide To Tower Construction (available from _www.championradio.com_
> I do not have an installation manual -- if anyone has a PDF of the
installation manual, I would be grateful to get a copy. At the moment I am
planning on digging a hole with dimensions 5' 6" x 5' 6" x 9' 0" deep; I got
these measurements from the US Tower web site and I hope they are correct.
There is no installation manual. Install the tower per the UST
specs and you should be okay. The specs consist of the base dimensions and
rebar schedule and some boilerplate about the strength of the concrete, etc.
Apparently you aren't getting a building permit. Even if you're
not, you should have an engineer take a look at the tower specs, your local
windspeed and other conditions and proposed windload to see if it's all
