Bob,
I use 20Ft of Rohn 25 and a tilt base with a tree near the tower and a
winch providing the motion. Total cost of tower sections and base was
less than 200$$ Nice to be able to have the antennas and rotators at
ground level for maintenance.
73 s have fun,
Norm

Does anyone have any experience with a similar system?  I have a few ideas already from my elmer J oe-K0VTY.  You can neve r have too much information.  I have a welder, concrete mixer and strong grandsons for moving things around.  Pictures available upon request.  Any ideas are appreciated.
