I've been reading this thread with great interest and honestly, more than a
few chuckles. So as I looked out my new French Doors and across my deck, I
realized that it was time to help.
This is your lucky day!
I have a two section, steel crankup tower with tilt base for you for FREE!
It is in good condition and it is yours.
But there's more! You can go through my TA33 element and boom collection
and pick out whatever you can use!
Now just come to Bergenfield, NJ and pick it up!
We're ten minutes from the New Jersey Turnpike.
My wife Nancy, N2FWI and I will provide lunch and/or dinner for you and your
She can look at our TINY 40X100 lot with TWO TOWERS on it!
One at 45 ft + 22 ft of masting has a 30+ft 6M yagi, 2 17 element 2M yagis
and an omni vertical.
The other is 40 ft and has whatever I'm playing with on it.
There are seven dishes between 3 and 8 feet on the ground waiting for
something fun to do.
I haven't finished it yet, but there is also a 3.5 inch, 13 ft mast through
my roof which I will soon be able to rotate with whatever I put on it!
Our hospitality and generosity - and the site visit, will help to adjust
your wife's expectations down to something more modest as you, as an HF only
operator have proposed!

Subject: [TowerTalk] Looking for photo of 30' tower
Well, after about four years of having a license I'm finally moved out of my
townhouse and into a detached home with a 1/4 acre lot and no HOA to look
over my shoulder. Everthing finally seems right for putting up a small
tower and beam (as opposed to my old attic loop) to make DX contacts a bit
easier. Only one thing stands in my way now, the wife.
What might make my effort a little easier is if I can show my wife that the
tower and beam won't dominate the entire back garden and surrounding
neighborhood. If anyone has a photo of a 30' free standing tower next to a
house with a small, 3-element beam on top I might have a chance of reaching
a compromise. I'm thinking of putting in a Universal Towers "12-30" or
"21-30" with some brand (possiblly Hy-Gain) of three element beam. Still,
any photo of a 30' tower will probably make (or break) my case.
Any chance that someone has this configuration and can share a photo?
