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.

    Unless this tower has significant top loading, it will not be an effective vertical for 160M (assume that’s a typo in yr query).
    Impossible to provide meaningful estimate from query, as there are simply wayyyyyyyy too many variables. What type of tower?
    You supply tower, or do I? Can you do any work, or must I provide helper, meaning if you can do the base/anchor work that eliminates one trip, otherwise requires two. Hopefully you get the idea.

    I’m looking to have installed a HAM antenna just behind my house in a “wooded area” just beyond the pool. Since I live in a subdivision, it can’t really be visible from the road but can be “camouflaged” to blend in among the trees. The antennas I’m considering are the MFJ-2389 Vertical 80-2 meter plus UHF or the MFJ HF/6M 3.5-54mhz. I would require the complete setup-grounding, cable buried and weather proofed etc. Is this something your company does?

    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.
