Current tower in use is Rohn HDBX. Standing 64' tall and costing only $500 due to being a second-hand purchase from an old 11 Meter buddy. But with a like new look due to absolutely no rust at all. That's including all of the required nuts & bolts for assembly-- TOO!
Installation began in Spring of 2005 thereabouts. Rain delays caused site work issues. Almost made a swimming pool out of 5' x 5' hole. Over a 1 square yard of concrete mix with 80 lb bags Quikrete/Sakrete being used. 24 bags TOTAL. Back hurts just thinking about it!!

Original foundation dug and concrete poured by hand. No machinery was used at all.
Took two days by myself with few breaks in between to dig foundation hole. Including hauling dirt and rock away in wheel barrow.

Injured right forearm in freak accident while working by myself. Almost lost use of arm/wrist for good! Some stitches at Walker Baptist Medical Center's Emergency Room caused more delays while I was healing.
A number of fellow hams came out to assist in tower's completion that Summer. Would never have been able to have finished were it not for their unselfish help.
God Bless. You know who you are!!

My very special thanks to
Bobby Sanford (KG4RJV) in finishing project!
He's long since gone SK.

If you are interested in putting up a tower in my area...
I can be made available to "elmer" assist you!
