We erected a Rohn 25G communications tower this weekend. This is a 30′ tower which we can use for mounting any number of communication apparatus including a television antenna or satellite dish, weather station, wireless radios, or even an IP video camera. Amber thinks it would also work for Christmas decorations, but that is strictly prohibited according to the manufacturer’s specs…I think.
The tower has a 4 ft. hinged base which we set in concrete. Having a hinged base makes this tower much easier to lay down and work on things. The tower is grounded using three 5/8″ x 8′ copper-clad ground rods which ground each leg of the tower independently. The three grounds are then bonded together with 4 gauge copper and then everything is bonded to the house electrical ground using 4 gauge copper as well.
