FM Radio, 89.9 FM - Spanish Wells, Bahamas
here is Chris Forsythe of Splash FM 89.9 in the Bahamas. Chris is the
this FM Broadcast station, and he took a very serious approach
organizing the installation of a new self supporting tower for his station.
This tower was painted with red/white color bands. Section 1 is shown here in the
forefront with a 50/50 color split. All other sections are painted one solid color. The
HD-100 foundation is shown here fully assembled on the right.
only will the 3-coat paint treatment warn low flying aircraft of the new tower's
this will also add to the corrosion barrier by working as a dual-protection
with the Hot-Dip Galvanizing.
is very pleased with the final result of all the effort that went into painting
new HD-100 Tower prior to section assembly.
here is Section 10 with a Fixed-Mount Mast Plate installed at the 100' level.
antenna mount includes an 18" round tube welded in the center of the triangular
plate. Two 1/2" setscrews (bolts) tighten against the inserted antenna
which holds the mast firmly in place.
