My Custom Built 80-Foot Tip-Tower -- Video.

#2
I will keep watering my antennas and hope they grow to resemble your farm.

I have plans for a fold over antenna though not quite that tall to use for a 2m ground plane and a either an end fed or fan dipole.

Have you lost any equipment when your tower has been struck?

Unless I'm using the radio it is not hooked up to the feed line. Consequently I have never lost anything to lightning yet.

I also have a copy of the plans for the tower. I can send them via File Sharing if you like.

I gotta say that's an awesome idea, and a cool setup!
How cost effective is that kind of tower as opposed to say, a Rohn 25 or something?
Cool video. Especially the trip to the top and back!
I had the tower built back in 1992. The cost of steel was much cheaper. I have no idea how it compares to the cost of other styles of towers.
