What are your recomendations for vibrating "high fiber" concrete. We pour the stuff so dry it takes a vibrator to get it down the chute. A freind down in Kentucky (just north of Carrolton) did his e

"NEVER say NEVER" OK, I concede, for LIGHT antennas, raised VERTICALLY alongside a tower, I suppose it is OK to use a GIN POLE for the lifting fixture. Disclaimer: Anyone who bends their gin pole mas

Oh, I dunno. Depends on the load, and how it is arranged. My A3S barely weighs 20 lbs. K9AY and I had no trouble raising it with a Bill Wall gin pole (much more substantial than a Rohn gin pole). But

Thanks for the info, Jerry. It reinforces my non-professional opinions about cable maintenance. Also, thanks for the hint on exercising the tower and moving the resting point. It's made me rethink my

I can not understand the love of "tram-ming" and "gyn pole-ing" up towers and antennas when snorkle lifts/cranes can be rented. The crane is so much easier, safer, quicker. Even if u are going up abo
