I have a 40' tower. I do not believe it is a Rohn. I am starting to draw up the plans to make a Rotor support/base plate for it.

I have seen on ebay the Rohn rotor base plates. It looks exactly like the one I'm designing.

Does anyone have the specs on this base plate?? If I can buy one cheap it will save me a ton of aggrivation in fabricating the one I designed.

The measuements on my design:

From inside the leg to outside of the opposite straight leg is 9-1/4" (from the point of the trinagle to the flat opposite side)

Thanks

Bob

Here's the detail dimension drawing for the Rohn 25G section:

If your tower dimensions are the same or very close to that, then the standard Rohn P/N A25G rotator plate should work for you.  It's strong, it's prepunched and predrilled for all popular amateur rotators, it's very well galvanized, and they last about 50 years.  It's not expensive.
