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.

    Hi. I live in Van Buren, AR. I am looming for a professional who can peek mount a 20 or 30 foot mast. I am getting a Hy-Gain A/V 18 anrennto put on the pole. The antenna is a vertical pole 18 feet long, weighs 4 pounds, and can withstand 80 mph winds. Is this something you could do or am I too far away?

    Monty: I could do it but the travel costs alone would certainly make this something more suited to someone in your local radio club,
    or even a handyman. Airfare abt $450.00, driving abt $980.00~!~ Please use k4za at juno dot com for correspondence. Tnx, 73 Don
