 It was Ez-Way that started it now Aluma uses it, its a 6" dia pipe, 6' goes in the ground and 8' is
above ground the tower pivots across the top to fold over There are two sets of fins one at the
bottom of the pipe and one just below the 6' level. The fins are 3" at 90º. The secret is to dig a
hole 12" in dia. I used a Bobcat with a 12" post hole digger and a 3ft extension. I took the better
part of a week to back fill. a little at a time with some water and a lot of tamping. It supports a
75HD crank up and a 4 element SteppIR for 5 years with out any problems.

Could be a Wonder Bar.  Looks like a torpedo.  Several sizes, from 8 to 10 feet long, very heavy
with fins.
I believe EZWay Towers manufactored the WB out of Tampa Florida.
The WB sticks out of the ground about 6 feet with a hinge on top.  The WB does not need cement or
special excavation.
Hope this helps...
