Antennas / Re: Antennae base
« Last post by ron-kk4hgy on April 04, 2019, 03:02:31 PM »
I would be very cautious about trying to tilt a 50 foot tower.  At one time Rhon towers said that 30 feet is the max for Rohn 25.  Is this Rohn 20 or Rhon 25?  I suggest you do a search on tilting towers.  One suggestion I saw was to pace a telephone or power pole next to the tower and connect tables and pulleys at the 20 foot level.  Also type of antenna(s) you plan on putting up there is a factor.

Which do you think is better, directly fed with bonded elements or insulated elements? Gamma match or directly fed?
Food for thought. Comments?
