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 48 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’m interested in having a ham tower installed next to my house (replacing the existing radio shack tv pole) that can extend up to 30′ (and maybe a pole tower that tips over for maintenance/upkeep). I want to put a TV antenna on it for digital tv reception. I currently have an tv antenna up and am getting the Richmond and C’ville station but not as reliably as I would want. I live in Afton.

    Is this something you might be interested in doing?
    If so, please let me know.

    Paul: Quick one-word answer? Sure…but I am booked in to December at this point. It would be best if you contacted
    me directly via my email: k4za@juno dot com
    That way, I’ll not miss anything (Often do not check the blog unless posting something, etc.). Do you have this pole tower you speak of, or
    are you in the market for something? I just acquired a small crankup tower (a US Tower TMM-433HD), which is a 33-ft crank up…probably fine for TV but a bit small for ham use. All best, Don K4ZA
