    This Glen Martin antenna track system is difftent then the hazer. It has two tracks that fasten onto the outside of the 45G tower face. This allows you to have guy wires hooked up on 90ft of tower. When you crank the antenna up the tower you can drop a set of the guys and then when you are pass them hook them back up and keep going up the tower. I have the manual and all hardware which is all stainless for attaching the aluminum track.Nice system if you want to go higher then 50ft the regular Hazer goes. Have manual for too.More pictures over on hamradioclassifieds.com $3000 941-567-0115

    Voyager Hazer antenna lift

    Well there are tracks that bolt onto the side of the tower. The sled has
    wheels that lock into the special track so it can't come off.
    There winch connects to a continuous cable looped to the top through
    a pulley and back down to the winch. The sled is just clamped to a section
    of the cable and it goes up and down the track as the cable goes around.
    That way you don't have to worry about winding up a bunch of cable when
    you crank it up. You are just moving the cable around the loop. Its a nice
    design they came up with but not cheap to build.

    How does it unhook re-hook guys so you can run 100+ ft towers and such with multiple sets of guys?

    You unhook guys maybe only two are in the way for the yagi to get past. You unhook
    them from the ground anchor and bring them into the tower then crankup the antenna
    up past that point and then hook them back up and keep going.
