Another hump day…

spent down in Darlington, SC, with Buddy, N4BY, installing a temporary base on 190-ft of 25G we’ll soon be taking down. As often happens, the tower was installed with the base “below grade,” and after 20 years, the siderails had simply lost enough steel that mostly the Z-bracing was holding the tower up! The owner was quite simply amazed.

A few minutes with the Skilsaw, some OSB board, some 2X4s and some drywall screws, and we had a formed-up base. Then, we were¬† mixing up some SAKRETE–enough so that we have 23-inches of curing concrete surrounding the old tower. Back in a month to take the thing down…

70 degree weather today…a harbinger of spring days to come?

stay tuned…
