Installation - Some photos of an HD-70 Tower being installed in Southern Arizona

Amateur Radio Station - AB7E, Hereford, Arizona


This HD-70 installation begins with excavating some very rocky ground.



 
  Dave spent considerable time in perfecting this foundation by hand.


Checking that all (3) foundation base legs are the correct distance apart.
 
 



A perfectly constructed rebar cage built to AN Wireless spec. Notice the
9" block this base section is sitting on to provide the required height.

   

Coax conduits added.
 
 

 

 

Waiting for truck #2.
 
 

A very nice trowel job.
 
 

Dave opted to paint this tower camouflage colors before assembly.

 

More assembly.

Splice joints were left unpainted for RF & electrical continuity.
 
 

All 7 sections easily assembled.
 
 

The crane is on site - preparing for the lift.

A simple and very effective stack that's well within the loading
specs of the HD-70 tower.
