This is the old VK4VKD operation - has been around for a number of years in
Oz. Nice new factory photos - looks like the guy is going bigtime. Quite a
few magazine articles in various international mags over the years, back to
1986. Started in his shed. He even used to sell a video of how to make them,
though it looks as if the design has come on a lot since then. I have
emailed him in the past - was very helpful though has a reputation of not
'suffering fools gladly', so don't flood the guy the silly emails. His old
webpages have listed users as VK4MR, VK4CWT, VK4FM, VK4ISA, VK4CPM, VK4AML -
you could try emailing them for opinions.
Note that on his 'Where One-Man Towers are built' page, there is a link to
an engineer's report:
there is also a useful 'must-see' page showing a large number of photos of
Caveat: I give no opinion on the towers themselves, as I don't have one, and
am not qualified to pass judgement even if I did.
