Hygain and Telex and there one other but don't remember off hand but used
the ear on rebar design. Since the cage is lost when the tower is sold there
a design of a flat plate plate 3/4-1 inch steel with ears. If done right a T
base would work just as well. I personally have made a set of ears to weld
on to rebar and own a flat plate design made by WA2VUN in NJ. Since he was
a PRO Welder and it was design by a PE it was a simple but heavy item. 73

To tell you the truth I don't know if it is truly a HyGain or not. I was
told it was but the person I bought it from had it sitting in their yard for
a few years so he could have been wrong. Is there any way to tell? all of
the labels have long since worn off.
