Even here in Michigan on what seem like calm days the darn things move
around. I was never able to use one successfully. I supported and
leveled the bottom two sections (3 counting the half section in
concrete). Then kept leveling as we went up. I tensioned the guys a
little at a time going around the tower. When finished I borrowed a
transit and it was spot on.
After nearly 30 years my old tower was beginning to look like a snake.
90 feet of TV tower is not something that builds confidence and
particularly when it's no longer straight.
