Tower Progess

This tower will be 60 feet tall, is made of aluminum, and will tilt over to allow work to be done on the antenna.  Today the concrete was poured for the 4′ X 4′ X 4′ tower base, a significant milestone.

In this picture I am proudly holding down a pile of dirt with my left foot.

Once the concrete cures the next step will be to tilt over the section shown here and bolt together the rest of the tower one section at a time.   Then the antenna, the rotor, the cables, the tilting fixture, and finally the grounding will be completed.  Thanks to KC0RF once again for the help today.  John easily won the prize for  “most stylish dresser”.
