My wife and I started construction of this tower, two years ago, October 11, 2015. We finally got it completed today, October 5, 2017. At the time, I was looking on Craigslist for some tower sections to put our ham shack back up in our new house. I stumbled on a guy that was selling some Rohn 55G tower sections so I bought five of them. Over the next two years, we had a tower mount installed into 5.5 yards of concrete. bought hardware, antennas, antenna rotator, cables, PVC among other things.
We finally got everything installed on September 30, 2017 except for running then cables through the PVC. I finally finished that up today at 12:30 PM. What an expensive, tough job this has been. It is time to stop spending money on this for a while and prepare for Christmas now that it is October. God has really blessed me with a wonderful wife that has been very patient and giving. My neighbors are the best as well. We want to be good neighbors but since we’ve moved into this house, we’ve torn the lawn up four times. As you can see in this picture, it has grown back nicely. It is time to get some rest.
