    Saw locally for $160 if I pick up.

    Trying to figure out brand..

    It's 30' total.. 3 sections total.



    For my A99 and maybe a 3 or 4 element beam later on in NC.. would definitely guy it..

    Old style DELHI or WADE tower...light duty made basically for TV antennas or ground plane antennas.
    Might be ok for small beam IF guyed/and or House bracket plus proper base installed.

    Guess I'll just save for the $900 30' Rohn 25 down the line then.

    This would be for NC anyway.. just got excited by the $160 price and only 90 miles away

    We have tons of rohn 20/25s 20-40 ft around me.. most have tv antennas on them that haven't been used in years..
    I live in a region of small towns mostly. I just asked around to a few friends and family and dudes on the air.. found a couple people that just wanted them down.. said "drop it and NOT on my house and you can have it".. a little elbow grease and a coat of paint the rohns are good for another 25 yrs.. I have 50 ft of 25 at my old QTH I have to go take down one of these days. This is how I found that however 15 yrs ago.

    I have also taken down a couple others and put them together to help out some of the local guys get some antennas in the air. I tend not to mess with the other flavors of tv tower just the "Z" bar rohn stuff. I have always had good luck with it..
