Joe and Melvin working. This shows the dipole tied off to the tower. It is clipped to a rung so the dipole can be lowered down. It also holds the off of the roof of my hamshack. Hard to see (you can zoom in) but the tower is fastened to the house at 20ft (where Melvin is) and at the 10ft section (just under the gutter of the first floor). 30ft is free standing.
The reason for the tower climb was to change out the rotor, fix the tribander (which had a director that wanted to be vertically polarized ;-), put a dual bander at the top of the tower, another on the side with packet antenna on the side. Took off the Cushcraft 13b2 off the top.
The bottom off the tower showed some rust. Since the tower is so solid (with the 2 attachments to the house), the first crew thought I could get away with a concrete form at the base to hold the bottom from "kicking out". Tower is very solid and does barely move in strong winds.
