I'd have to take this (
http://www.rogerhalstead.com/ham_files/Tower29.htm ) through 3 sets of
guys. It's 30 feet from the top of the tower to the top antennas which
have now been up just shy of 9 years. The only problems have been the
LMR-400 UltraFlex pigtail jackets which have split and are now
BTW IIRC each guy anchor weights just shy of 20,000 #
I'll be 70 in just 2 more months. I was up there yesterday. My only
problem climbing is getting back in shape along with arthritis, but the
climbing is good for me. Hurts like the devil though.
Were I going to put up another tower (If I wind the lottery or buy the
right stock) I'd put up a heavy duty crank up, similar to that monster
that's been at Dayton the last two years, but 100-120 feet would be
plenty as long as it'd hold the antennas. Course if I won the lottery
I'd probably move and need two of those big monsters along with some
smaller ones....and a couple of new amps and rigs.
