Going to put this up for OTA and for fixed dish setups. It is a Rohn 55 tower so it should be more than enough for what I need.

Sink it in some serious concrete and make sure it has some way to be stressed for flexing. I guess you will also guy it? once up then you can mount dishes to it using U bolts around the uprights.

The third picture is the base that will be sunk in the ground and cemented. Not going to guy it as it will only be 40 feet.

The guy I traded for it has the stuff for dish mounts ect. I think it should work out pretty good. Not bad for not having to pay for it :)

Boy the price is perfect but if it were me I'd guy it so it doesn't get to moving in strong wind and make sats signal go in & out.

I have access to some more big tower like that but you would have to pick it up in Oklahoma. :(

I might guy it if it becomes an issue but since it is not a typical TV antenna tower. I did not think it would be an issue. Rohn shows it as the following. (55G available as a self-supporting tower up to 60') But I am sure it won't take long to find out if it needs more support.

This was part of 430ft tower that got replaced due to a stupid mistake a kid made. So I got the lower 40ft. Glad I did not have to pay for it lol. Pretty high dollar stuff. I love trading :)

The 55G should be OK with this set up but you will really need one really heavy duty concrete pad.
