His reply was pointless to my question.
Heights has been building aluminum towers since 1959, I seriously
doubt there is anything wrong with a properly engineered tower
constructed out of aluminum.
To answer your questions, the tower I am restoring is a free-standing
55' with a wind load rating of 17 sq. ft. @ 90 MPH. I plan on
installing a 2-ele Quad and a linear loaded 40M rotatable dipole.
However, none of this pertains to my initial question. I have tower
experience using Rohn 25G so I know all the basic essentials involved,
what I don't have experience with is crankup towers.
I merely added basic info about my project to add further insight to
what I am doing.
