Tensioning the Phillystran is a good point if you find it easier to install the guy grips with the Phillystran held tight, but it is not a requirement. Phillystran recommends tensioning only as an op

Al - If you haven't trammed an antenna before, also be aware that unless the tram line is very taught there is a lot of sag in the line as the antenna reaches the top of the tower. With only 18 inche

I too have used this mast material for over thirty years. For moderate sized installations it is wonderful. Lightweight, doesn't rust, easy to drill, relatively low cost, and seems to handle the wind

Tom - I've always pinned my masts to the rotators, including a G-1000DXA and G-2800DXA. I've had no problems with the moderate size antennas I use, e.g. 4-el SteppIR, Magnum 240N 2-el 40. My reasonin

Bob - I'm not a balun expert, but would recommend you try the Palomar BA-8. I've been using them here. They seem to work and there are no delicate windings that might arc over under higher SWR condit

Tony - As previously noted, neverseize or not, you just need a ground crew to put a little upward pressure on the section while someone is on the tower assisting with the separation. No big deal. A t

I thought that was kind of a funny description. I'm sure they meant guyed, as I don't think this one was self-supporting, HI. Anyway, an incredible video. Free climbing at 100ft is something I don't

Good advice from Dave. And, sometimes you don't even have to fight with the adjuster. They may just accept the professional estimate and send you a check. It's happened to me on several occasions. GL
