Towers & Access

Alumatower T50-XHD - Sold!

For sale is my Alumatower T50-XHD tilt/crank-up aluminum tower (new $4,590 + crating
shipping) with M2 Orion 2800 antenna positioner ($1,500 new), mast, Yaesu thrust
controller cable, Green Heron RT-21 rotator control ($570 new), and
Alumatower MP-2D in-ground mounting pole ($1,089 new) and Dewalt high power drill
raises the antennas from 25 to 50 feet in about a minute. This setup was installed in
1/2010 and
It is quite simply amazing. The mounting pole is installed - NO
CONCRETE - six feet into the ground. Metal "fans" stabilize it in the ground using only dirt.
an auger with a 12" bit and dig a hole, mount the pole, fill the dirt back in, water it and let
up for maybe a few weeks before putting any windload on it. It has
withstood 60+ mph winds and barely moves. I have not used any guys but brackets are
on the tower. It tilts over for easy antenna mounting and service; lower for a storm etc. It
currently is supporting two Optibeam antennas: an OB 9-5 and OB 2-40 40M
beam. Short of having a huge field with 120' towers, this assembly is the best. This is not
inexpensive setup but could be the only one you ever need. I really get out and rarely use
amp. Prefer to sell the entire package but will consider parting out if someone
first wants the tower only. We could also talk about a package with the antennas as well.
Everything was about $8,000 new plus shipping; I am asking $6,000. Setup is still mounted
and I
will need to disassemble and remove from ground.Purchaser responsible for
taking delivery/pickup but will assist in any way I can. No trades. Split Paypal

I am preparing to move, disassembling my shack and having a big sale. Check out my
items as I post them. Also, you can check out my shack pics on - virtually
you see there will be for sale. It is ALL in excellent condition, purchased since
2010; non-smoker. Major items: ACOM 2000A linear, ICOM IC-7700; Elecraft K3 with every
option/filters and Panadapter; Optibeam OB 9-5 and OB 2-40; Alumatower T50-XHD
tilt/telescoping tower with in-ground mounting pole, M2 Orion 2800 antenna
positioner, Green Heron rotator control, mast; full W2IHY suite; TE Systems 1450 GS 2m
tons of cables, connectors, stuff. I had the luxury of purchasing what I thought was the
equipment around, loved assembling the shack, but really not using it and
downsizing. I am only occasionally on the radio - not at all in the last few months, and not
contester. I would be willing to discuss a shack clean-out package price. Will consider
reasonable offers on all items. Please advise if you
need pics but everything is as seen on manufacturer's websites. 100% feedback
