It is 2022 and I decided that it was time to put up a tower to go along with all the other stuff in the back yard. Here is the shack with the antenna patch panel on the right.
Found someone that was selling 40 feet of 'Rohn' tower that ended up being AME-25 but that is okay. Didn't have to pay for shipping and the like new tower was about five hundred dollars with some extra stuff thrown in after I noted that Shelby Ohio is the home of Ameritower.
Grounding, Gin Pole, Water Jug counter weight, notes and calculations.
Dug a holeintheground
Put gravel in the bottom, set the 10 foot mid section, and installed some rebar.
6" forms around the top of the hole
Used guy wires for leveling and support.
Ready for the concrete truck
Concrete. Four feet by Four feet by Four feet of hole now filled with concrete.
Concrete cure time is about 28 days. I kept it wet for a week using old towels and plastic.
Ran some more cabling
Tower base Grounding work
About a month later, the Antenna install
Gin pole, guy wires, cables, and pipe
Guy wire grounding. The fence, the tower, the guys, and a big bunch of copper all cleaned up and double checked.
