My name is Blair, callsign NP2F. I bought a used tower, it appears to be in good condition - just has some slight surface rust on the base. It is 39' tall, self-supporting, galvanized steel, triangular. The legs are 13" apart for the first 24 feet, then 9" apart. The base section is just under 3' tall. I'm attaching photos.
I would like to find out what kind of tower this is, because I want to find out what the manufacturer's recommendations for a concrete foundation are. I want to mount a beam and rotor on it.
If anyone recognizes it, or can help me figure out what a suitable foundation for it would be, please let me know.
