One of my towers is a 114' Rohn 25 with the usual antennas on top. All
the control wires and coax come from the top down to the 25' level. A
tag line of 1/4" steel cable departs the tower at 25' elevation and runs
55' over to the shack. This cable end is attached to the wooden
structure via a steel plate bolted to the fascia board with 2x8 backing.
The coax and control wires are suspended from this cable and enter the
shack via a PolyPhaser panel. The tower is grounded well, as are the guy
post and guy wires.
Have I just invited Mother Nature over to burn my shack down with this
Thanks for any input & 73,
