Unfortunately the manufacturer has discontinued the product. Harry, I would 
be interested in anything that you get off the reflector for use with the 
HG-54HD that I just bought. In the manual for the HG-70HD there is a 
drawing for making a wooden "gin pole" to use in the "falling derrick" 
method of raising & lowering the tower. I am interested in something a 
little more permanent.

Experience is the thing you have left when everything else is gone.
