I have been using Brite Zinc for about 5 years on my Rohn 55G tower in Aruba. The product is easy to apply and it dries hard. Unfortunately for me it gets salt blasted off in less than a year, howeve

I have seen the cables of crankup towers break pretty quickly in that environment. You didn't say what your application is. If there is not a lot of windload or height, perhaps an aluminum tower woul

Did you contact the manufacturer? Perhaps they sent you the gamma match for their 10m or 20m antenna. A short history and then to the question.... What a nightmare!!!! In 2004, AA6PW won a 3-element

This is a very tragic event and it must have been horrific for the father to witness. I have the same antenna and I installed it myself using a crane on a 160' Rohn 65G tower about a decade ago with

Why would the impedance change with a different driven element. The reflector and director lengths and spacing are not being changed and I thought that is what sets the impedance. If I remember corre

I would definitely check with one of the ARRL volunteer attorneys or the ham-law reflector on Hawaii's single 90' tower restriction. I recall KH7R having a number of towers. You might want to check o

IMHO the tower base designs that utilize some sort of undercutting/belled out at the bottom are stupid and potentially dangerous. In some designs the base is 6-9 feet deep and being that far down to

I've used dozens of the 58R-112S Polyphaser clamps and I don't think that $14 /each is unreasonable when protecting your system from lightning. The tower that I had in Illinois was hit by lightning n

Try a porcupine or rabbit's foot. Seriously, build your antennas strong enough to not get bend and don't worry about it. By thankful it's not a parrot chewing on your cables. Well here is a new wrink

I'm not sure why my message posted three times when I only sent it once. Yes, I meant using an elevation or azimuth rotator won't change the angle of radiation. This is assuming level ground, if your
