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.

    What is by average the price for installing a 100 ft rohn 25g ham radio tower?

  3. K4ZA says:

    I long ago gave up trying to provide MEANINGFUL estimates on ham radio installations. There are simply way too many variables. Pse contact me directly to discuss your needs. Use: k4za@juno.com or use the work cell

    I’m thinking of installing a TV antenna mast adjacent to our house, possibly about 30 feet high, with a TV receiving antenna on it. It would stand on the ground, no guy wires, but it could be attached to the house for bracing, about 10 – 15 feet up, depending on location. Do you have any suggestions for product and installation?

  5. K4ZA says:

    Perhaps you could use a Rohn 25G w/a house bracket, but the base still needs to be set in concrete, regardless.
    10-15 ft up is likely going to put the bolts through an interior wall of your house, likely not what you want.
    Higher would not only resolve that but would aid in the integrity of the installation. 99.999999999% of my work
    is ham radio, not TV antennas, & I have no idea where you are, so a travel estimate isn’t possible. Good luck & best regards, Don
