Most non-hams do not see any beauty in a ham tower or antenna. Force 12 addresses this issue with its line of "low profile" towers, which have a minimal visual impact. As towers go, these "low profile" towers have the least visual impact of anything I have seen.

They are lightweight (made of aluminum) and nest at such a low level that your antenna can quickly and easily be lowered to roof-level for safe and easy maintenance.

Construction quality is excellent.

In high winds, the tower makes no creaking or other sound.

Atop my LPT34 is a Traffie hexbeam rotated by an AlfaSpid rotor. Neighbors, of course, have noticed the tower and beam, but - so far - not a single neighbor has voiced a complaint or even reacted negatively.

This tower was not inexpensive, but keeping neighborhood peace made it well worth the price.
