K4ZA and K4DXA working on repairing K4MK’s 80M Yagi

Tower Works: That title says it all—if you need tower work done, from installation to repair, I can probably help you!

With 52 years of ham radio experience, I’ve worked on most every size & make of tower/beam, and specialize in Rohn guyed-towers (25, 45, 55G, etc.). Have a solid mechanical & engineering background (National Contest Journal contributing editor), along with all the necessary skills & tools to install, take down, or repair your system, whether it’s 20 or 200-feet high.

Reasonable rates, good reviews, & ability to travel.

The picture, by the way, is Ken, K4DXA, & myself, working on repairing Kent’s, K4MK, 80M Yagi, a 2L Create. After lowering it just a bit, a system of slings allowed me to tilt the boom so Ken could climb down, access the element tips, & lengthen them. We then repeated that process three more times, successfully tuning the beam in the air, on the tower.  Kent was very happy with the repair.

    I have been a ham since the 60’s but have not been active for years. I retired a few years back and have decided I would like to get back into the hobby. I live in Rome, Ga and I am 71 y/o and need help in setting up HF antenna and vhf /uhf antenna. I have not purchased any gear yet so I’m open to suggestions. Years ago I had a dipole and work mostly 80, 40, and 20 meters. I have plenty of yard space and many trees. I was also considering a HF antenna that could be put up on a portable pole. We are RVers and travel a good bit. I’m in no particular hurry so scheduling is flexible.

    How do you charge? We have a small guest appartment you could stay in. Would this be something you would be interested in doing? I have absolutely nothing right now so I would need to put in coax, grounding rods, antennas, etc. Rome is located in Northwest Georgia.
