Howdy, TowerTalkians --
Here are some notes from the field.
Just saw TWO instances of antenna boom-to-mast plate failures. In both
instances (different stations in different states) the U-bolts were still on
the mast but the middle of the plate just tore right away (antenna fall down
and go boom). I've worked on almost 175 hams stations and I haven't run into
this before. And now two in the same week.
US Towers is building a new manufacturing facility somewhere in the
MidWest. Their leadtime is currently running 12 weeks.
